Morning Quakes Shake California Awake

Both King City and San Diego got reminders we live in earthquake country

King City police say there are no reports of damage or injuries after an earthquake with a magnitude 3.6 was recorded outside of the city.

A dispatcher for the department says she was not aware of the quake.

The U.S. Geological Surveys says the earthquake hit at 6:27 about 20 miles southeast of King City, or about 108 miles southeast of San Jose.

Monday also started off with a jolt in San Diego County, as a 4.1 earthquake rocked the region.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported the moderate quake hit around 4:35 a.m. about 10 miles north of the Palomar Observatory and about 20 miles east of the Riverside County community of Temecula.

The quake was felt across San Diego, with reports from residents ranging from Alpine to Golden Hill and all the way east to Palm Desert.  There are no reports of damage or injuries.

The quake comes just days after all of Southern California participated in an earthquake drill -- in the event of a 7.8 magnitude quake on the San Andreas Fault.
