3.6 earthquake hits Riverside County area, Southland's third in a day

November 16, 2009 |  7:58 am

Me-quake16  A magnitude 3.6 earthquake hit Riverside County east of Temecula.

The temblor did not cause any damage, though it was felt in parts of the Inland Empire. It hit near the small town of Anza in southwestern Riverside County.

It was the third moderate quake to hit Southern California in the last 24 hours. A 4.3 temblor hit off San Nicholas Island Sunday afternoon, followed by a 3.6 aftershock.

Neither of those quakes caused damage or injuries.
