A 4.0 earthquake struck Imperial County, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The temblor struck at 11:27 a.m. about nine miles west of Calexico, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. There had been several other smaller quakes in that same area along the U.S.-Mexico border in the last few hours.

The temblor was felt in Imperial County and as far away as Laguna Niguel, San Diego and Fallbrook, according to the USGS.
