Baja earthquake felt in Yuma
A 4.7-magnitude earthquake felt in Yuma rattled northern Baja California Saturday evening.
The moderate quake struck near the community of Alberto Oveido Mota, which is located about 35 miles southwest of San Luis Rio Colorado, Son.
The tremor struck around 8:30 p.m. The U.S. Geological Survey reported the quake had a depth of 6.2 miles.
No damage or injuries were reported. Mexican newspapers reported a power outage with service restored that same evening.
The 4.7-magnitude earthquake was preceded by four smaller tremors between 2.5 and 3.4 magnitudes. It was also followed by a series of 16 aftershocks between 2.5 and 4.1 through the early hours of Sunday.
The quake occurred 12 miles from Guadalupe Victoria, Baja Calif., which was near the epicenter of the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck on Easter Day in 2010.
