Small earthquake hits in Southern California

A magnitude-3.3 earthquake has struck in Southern California.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor hit at 10:50 p.m. Sunday and was centered about 16 miles north northwest of Borrego Springs – in the area where a magnitude 5.4 temblor hit on Wednesday.

Lt. Steve Nolan of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department says there were no reports of injury or damage in Sunday night's quake.

Wednesday's much stronger quake was felt as far away as the Los Angeles area.
