LOS ANGELES (AP) — An earthquake has shaken a wide swath of Southern California but there's no word of any damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey's monitoring system places the epicenter in the desert near Anza, about 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
The quake struck at 9:55 a.m. Monday and was initially estimated at magnitude 5.1 but that was quickly downgraded to 4.7
It was felt sharply in the local area and also rolled through downtown Los Angeles, San Diego and in Orange County.
Palms Springs police Sgt. Harvey Reed says the department has received no reports of damage or injuries.
There are no other immediate reports of damage in the region.
