A 4.4-magnitude earthquake struck near the Coachella Valley area in Riverside County Tuesday afternoon.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was 19 miles from Valle Vista, 19 miles from East Hemet, 19 miles from Temecula and 97 miles from Mexicali, Mexico.
The quake was felt across the Inland Empire as well as northern San Diego County, the USGS said.
In the last 10 days, there have been no earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater centered nearby.
One way you can tell you’ve acclimated to Los Angeles is that you’ve figured out which large blunt objects would fall on your head in the event of a large earthquake.
You’ve probably also made no effort to move them.
