Series of small earthquakes hit mountains north of San Diego-Riverside County line

Magnitude 3.4 quake had epicenter near Anza

SAN DIEGO - A series of small earthquakes hit the mountains just north of the San Diego-Riverside county line early Sunday, according to automated seismograph computers.

A magnitude 3.4 quake started the most recent string of temblors. It was at 6:10 a.m., and had an epicenter 7 miles south-southeast of Anza, or about 10 miles north-northeast of Palomar Mountain.

A 2.5 quake apparently hit the same location at 6:18, and 10 microquakes in the magnitude 1.1 area rattled the area in the subsequent three hours.

A 10News viewer in Valley Center reported what felt a small quake.

The data was generated by sensors and computers operated by the Southern California Seismic Network, a joint project of Caltech and the USGS. The automated reports had not been reviewed by scientists and were subject to revision.
