A magnitude 4.5 earthquake rattled the California-Mexico border on Thursday morning.

The temblor was recorded at 8:22 a.m. near Seeley, Calif., about 15 miles southwest of Calexico in Imperial County. The area was shaken by last year's 7.1 Easter Sunday quake, which caused more than $90 million in damage.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was felt across Imperial County as well as in San Diego, Orange County and parts of the Inland Empire. No damage was reported.
