SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A magnitude-4.1 earthquake that struck Saturday in Baja California, Mexico rattled parts of San Diego County, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Automated seismographs recorded the quake about 2:25 p.m. about 16 miles southwest of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California and 104 miles ease-southeast of Tijuana, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The area in Baja California where the quake struck is about 150 miles from San Diego.

Weak shaking was felt by some Valley Center residents, but no damage was reported, according to the USGS website. A few residents in Mexico and in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties also reported the shaking on the USGS website.

The Baja California quake was the second that shook some San Diego County residents Saturday.

A magnitude-3.8 quake struck about 8:05 a.m. about two miles northwest of Devore, in San Bernardino County, according to the USGS. Slight damage from the quake was reported in Rancho Cucamonga, just west of the quake's epicenter.

Residents in Fallbrook, Escondido and Oceanside reported weak shaking from Saturday morning's quake, but no damage, according to the USGS.
