Another quake shakes Ocotillo area


Some East County residents may have felt a 3.6-magnitude aftershock that struck near Ocotillo early Wednesday but no damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The aftershock struck at 1:03 a.m. and was centered 7 miles southeast of Ocotillo, according to preliminary information from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Thousands of similarly sized aftershocks have rattled the area since a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck April 2, killing two people in Mexicali and causing hundreds of millions dollars damage in Imperial County.
