On Monday, August 17th, a swarm of earthquakes shook parts of California and Arizona, including San Diego and Yuma, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
At least seven earthquakes hit Baja California, Mexico, about 120 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, in a 24-hour period of time.
The largest was a 5.1 magnitude earthquake, according to Earthquake Track. Other quakes ranged from 1.6 to 4.4 magnitude. No damage was reported, according to NBC San Diego.
Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey says. It replaces the old Richter scale.
Quakes between 2.5 and 5.4 magnitude are often felt but rarely cause much damage, according to Michigan Tech.
