Two Small Earthquakes Hit Southern California

By  | 

TRONA, Calif. (AP) _ A pair of small earthquakes have hit an inland area of Southern California, but no injuries or damage have been reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.5-magnitude quake hit San Bernardino County about 15 miles northeast of Trona around 4:30
p.m. Tuesday. The quake was initially reported as a 4.4, but was
downgraded by seismologists who said a computer misread the initial
data.

One minute after the first temblor, a 3.6-magnitude quake hit Devore, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. That's about 125 miles south of Trona.
