ENSENADA, Mexico (KGTV) — A 4.2 magnitude earthquake that rattled Baja California Wednesday was reportedly felt by residents in San Diego County.

The earthquake was registered by USGS at about 1:17 p.m. about 80 miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border and nearly 20 miles outside Ensenada. The quake struck had a depth of about 8.6 miles.

USGS originally recorded the quake as a 4.4 magnitude, before downgrading it to 4.2.

In San Diego County, residents felt the earthquake as far north as Escondido, according to the USGS's "did you feel it" map.

No injuries or damages were immediately reported.
