Magnitude 4.4 quake, others shake San Diego area

SAN DIEGO (WKOW) -- A cluster of moderate earthquakes near the U.S.-Mexico border continues to rattle southern California one week after a magnitude 7.2 quake slammed the area.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck at 9:42 a.m. Sunday, about 11 miles west of downtown Calexico.

At least 17 other quakes in the magnitude 3 range were also reported in the same area Sunday.

No damage or injuries have been reported.

Scientists say the increased seismic activity is normal following the magnitude 7.2 earthquake last Sunday. Officials say the Easter quake killed two people and caused an estimated $100 million in damage to California alone.
