5.9 magnitude earthquake hits south of Mexicali

One of the areas I watch is the area between the Salton Sea and the Gulf of California. They have just experienced a 5.9 magnitude quake followed by 15 aftershocks.

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit 23 miles Southeast of Calexico Wednesday morning.

The quake hit at 10:48 a.m. Wednesday, with an epicenter in Mexico, according to the U.S. Geological Survey Web site.

  1. I was in the area on a business trip to promote an iphone app called “Mexicali” – it was a frightful experience to feel the 5.8 tremor!
