At 8:26 pm PDT last night California was rocked by an earthquake. The United States Geological Survey reports that the quake was 5.7 magnitude. People in San Diego reported feeling the quake.

The quake’s epicenter was southeast of Ocotillo, California. The quake was in a remote area of Southern California near Mexico. The quake even briefly halted an inter-league play between the Toronto Blue Jays and the San Diego Padres. It was even reported on the score board at the game.

Thankfully there are no reports of injuries or damages from the California earthquake last night. Also, there have been no additional warnings for earthquakes or tsunami warnings.

This quake was considered an aftershock of the quake that rocked the area on Easter. This is the largest aftershock recorded since the Easter earthquake. Apparently aftershocks can go on after an earthquake for months and years.
