Small quake, aftershocks felt in city

A series of small earthquakes that rattled a remote area of Riverside County near Anza Tuesday were felt in Palm Springs, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The initial quake, with a magnitude of 3.7, struck at 3:41 p.m. about five miles south of Mountain Center, and roughly 15 miles east-southeast of Hemet, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Minutes later, a smaller quake measuring 2.1 struck, followed a larger
3.5-magnitude temblor just before 4 p.m. At least two small aftershocks,
both less than 3.0, hit moments later.
