4.1 earthquake rattles California border region

August 29, 2010 |  9:19 am

A 4.1 earthquake struck the California border region on Sunday, the latest of thousand of aftershocks from the Easter Sunday Mexicali temblor.

The latest quake occurred at 8:53 a.m. about 33 miles from Mexicali. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The region has seen a series of aftershocks and triggered quakes since the massive 7.2 temblor, which was the largest in the region in nearly 20 years.

The Mexicali quake that occurred April 4 caused more than $90 million on the California side of the border and killed two people in Mexico. Earthquake experts have said the 7.2 temblor has resulted in a more seismically active period in California compared with the last few years.
