3.1 aftershock shakes East County, Imperial Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A magnitude 3.1 aftershock struck the Imperial Valley and eastern San Diego County Saturday, according to automated seismographs and computers operated by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The aftershock was centered about 40 miles southeast of Mexicali, or about 135 miles east-southeast of San Diego. It hit at 6:37 a.m.

Thousands of similarly-sized aftershocks have rattled the area since a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck on April 2 of 2010, killing two people in Mexicali and severely damaging canals, schools and older buildings in Imperial County.
