The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the magnitude-4.6 temblor struck at 12:39 p.m. Thursday near the seismically active California-Mexico border.
The temblor was centered about 9 miles north of Ocotillo and 25 miles west-northwest of El Centro, the Imperial County seat in California's southeastern corner.
San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Munsey says there are no reports of damage.
