5.7 earthquake rattles Southern California

Posted: Updated:

(AP) — A 5.7 earthquake has been felt in southern California.

The quake rolled through the city and the surrounding metropolitan area Monday at about 9:30 PDT.

The epicenter was located 5.8 miles southeast of Ocotillo, Ca.

It follows a series of temblors that struck Southern California over the weekend, including a pair of moderate earthquakes that rattled a desert area east of San Diego. Residents in downtown San Diego could feel the ground rumbling during at least one of the Saturday quakes.

Play stopped momentarily in the eighth inning of Monday night's Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game as Petco Park swayed during an earthquake.

The public address announced asked that everyone remain calm. The crowd cheered.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries from Monday night's earthquake.
