Posted: Updated:

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — A small earthquake has struck southern Riverside County but there are no reports of damage or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a quake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.6 hit at 5:54 a.m. Monday about 10 miles from the unincorporated community of Anza.

That's about 30 miles southwest of Palm Springs and 50 miles from San Diego.

A Riverside County sheriff's dispatcher says no damage or injuries were reported.

On Sunday, two small quakes were reported off the California coast. A magnitude 4.3 hit about 14 miles east of San Nicolas Island and was followed by a magnitued-3.6 temblor. Both were deep underwater and caused no damage.
