Inyo County was struck by a swarm of earthquakes this morning, including a 5.1 temblor around 3 a.m.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there have been more than 30 temblors centered about seven miles from the tiny town of Keeler, 11 miles from Lone Pine and 148 miles from Las Vegas.

Quake swarms have occurred before around California, notably in the Mammoth Lakes area and around the Salton Sea.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
While most temblors in the quake swarm were tiny, there were several 3.5 aftershocks to the 5.1 main quake.
