A 4.4 earthquake off the coast of Baja California this morning rattled San Diego, but there were no reports of injuries or damage.

The temblor struck at 6:19 a.m. in the Pacific Ocean about 31 miles west of Rosarito Beach and 41 miles from Imperial Beach.

Officials said the quake was felt in Tijuana and San Diego. The magnitude of the quake was originally estimated at 5.0 but was later downgraded.

There was a series of smaller quakes to the east along the California-Mexico border this weekend. They did not cause any damage or injuries.
