Earthquake map centered at 33°N,116°W

Several earthquake have been reported over the last two days along a seismically active section of the U.S.-Mexican border.

The largest of the quakes measured 4.0 magnitude and hit around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. It was followed by a 3.0 quake.

They were centered around the Baja California town of Guadalupe Victoria, which has been the site of numerous quakes since last year's 7.2  Easter Sunday quake near Mexicali.

That quake -- which caused more than $90 million in damage in California alone -- has produced thousands of aftershocks both in Mexico and California.

A 3.6 earthquake occurred in the same general region on Saturday.
