Small quake shakes Inland Empire

LOMA LINDA (AP) • A small earthquake shook the Inland Empire Tuesday afternoon, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-3.6 quake struck about 2 miles southeast of Loma Linda. The agency received about 60 reports from residents in San Bernardino and Riverside counties who felt shaking.

“I didn’t really feel anything, but my house made that settling noise like right before an earthquake hits,” Kristina Gutierrez wrote on the Daily Press Facebook page. “My dog even jumped up.”

USGS Geophysicist Don Blakeman says quakes this size can be felt in populated areas, but typically are too small to cause any damage.
