SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A 2.8 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of San Diego early Saturday - but you probably wouldn't have guessed it.

The small quake occurred just after 4:30 a.m. Saturday about 50 miles off the coast of San Diego. The earthquake had a depth of about 15.5 miles.

Few people reported feeling any indication of the shakeup on the United States Geological Survey's (USGS) website. Those who did tell USGS they felt it from as far away as Fallbrook and Temecula, though they indicated weak seismic activity.

No damage has been reported.


Last month, a couple of earthquakes shook up the San Diego region, with magnitude 3.0 and 3.5 quakes striking Tijuana.
