No immediate damages or injuries were reported as result of the earthquake.

A handful of USGS' "Did You Feel It?" responses were reported from San Diego County, but most responses came from the Barstow and Ridgecrest areas.

There was no tsunami danger from the earthquake, according to the U.S. Tsunami Warning System.
