A series of earthquakes has rattled California, from rural Imperial County all the way to the San Diego County coast.

Paul Caruso with the U.S. Geological Survey says the first quake, magnitude 3.9, struck at 10:02 a.m. Sunday about three miles north-northwest of Brawley.

It was followed by a 3.4 quake about 90 seconds later in the same area near the southern end of the Salton Sea about 16 miles north of El Centro. Magnitude 2.2 and 2.0 quakes followed minutes later.

Preliminary USGS reports indicated that three quakes larger than magnitude 5.3 struck within two minutes starting at 12:30 p.m. Caruso says the magnitude of those quakes have not been verified.

A sheriff's dispatcher says there have been no reports of damage or injuries.
