Earthquake map centered at 34°N,117°W

A 3.7 earthquake was reported near the mountain community of Idyllwild.

The temblor occurred at 9:30 a.m. and was centered about seven miles west of Idyllwild and about eight miles east of Hemet. It's unclear which faultline the quake occurred on.

There were no reports of damage or injuries. That general area did see a slight increase in seismic activity last year after the Easter Sunday Mexcali quake.
