A magnitude 4.6 earthquake reportedly hit Mexico as locals in California experienced violent shaking.
The quake struck the coastal city of Ensenada, Mexico, but tremors were felt in San Diego County around 9:30 p.m. local time Thursday.
The earthquake started nine miles below the ocean floor – about 80 miles southeast of San Diego.
Residents felt the tremors in La Mesa, Spring Valley and Pacific Beach.
Reports of shaking were also experienced in southern Orange County.
Tremors were felt as far away as Oceanside ABC7.
This was announced by geologist Tom Rockwell of the US Geological Survey The San Diego Union Tribune: “It was a sharp, very rapid jerk that was felt widely in San Diego.”
Officials with the US National Tsunami Warning Center said the quake is unlikely to trigger a tsunami.
The quake came almost 12 years after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Baja California on Easter Sunday 2010.
