Two earthquakes hit the Big Bear area on Monday afternoon.

The first quake hit about 1:30 p.m. a few miles north of Big Bear City. That registered magnitude 3.2. The second quake hit about 10 minutes later, and registered 3.1.

There were no reports on injuries or damage from either quake, but they were felt by residents in the San Bernardino Mountains region. According to the U.S. Geological Survey's Did You Feel It? service, people reported feeling the quake in Big Bear Lake as well as Big Bear City.

Earlier this morning, a small quake struck off the Santa Monica Bay. More than 1,000 people said they felt that 3.6 temblor, which was most pronounced in the Westside and South Bay areas.
