A swarm of mild earthquakes shook the Coachella Valley on Monday morning, including a magnitude 4.3 temblor at the Salton Sea.
MONDAY NIGHT:Nine earthquakes rattle Salton Sea in one hour
The larger earthquake, which happened 7:31 a.m., was centered in the Salton Sea, 3.7 miles southeast of Bombay Beach, according to the United States Geological Survey. The area is about 60 miles southeast of Palm Springs.
USGS initially reported the earthquake was a magnitude 4.2 before upgrading it slightly.
It was just one of at least 11 earthquakes larger than magnitude 2.5 to originate near Bombay Beach on Monday morning.
Three preceded the magnitude 4.3. Just after 4:30 a.m., there were two temblors that registered 2.6 and 2.8, respectively. Hours later, at 6:15 a.m., there was a magnitude 3.3 earthquake.
Then, at 7:33 a.m., there was a magnitude 3.0 earthquake. That was followed by a pair of magnitude 2.5 earthquakes at 7:35 and 7:45 a.m.
As expected with earthquakes of this size, there have been no reports of damage.
On Saturday morning, about 2:15 a.m., a 3.4 magnitude quake shook the Desert Hot Springs area, rattling a few Coachella Valley residents awake.
