San Diego — An earthquake centered near the U.S.-Mexico border jolted San Diego and shook the Los Angeles area Monday evening.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude-5.7 quake was centered five miles southeast of Ocotillo, Calif. — about 70 miles east of San Diego. It struck at about 9:30 PDT, and was initially reported as a magnitude-5.9 temblor.
At least nine aftershocks, measuring between 3.2 and 4.1, followed.
San Diego’s Petco Park swayed, and the public address announcer at the Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game asked that everyone remain calm. The crowd cheered.
The quake was felt as a gentle rolling motion in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County.
