Ocotillo area shaking again

A magnitute-4.2 earthquake was recorded about 8 miles east southeast of Ocotillo early today.

The quake struck at 2:01 a.m., according to preliminary information from the U.S. Geological Survey.

The likely aftershock from the April 4, magnitude-7.2 earthquake in Baja California was preceded by magnitude-3.7 temblor in the same area about 24 hours earlier.
