A 5.0 magnitude earthquake shook San Diego County Saturday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 5.0 quake struck at 11:33 a.m. Saturday about 16 miles west-southwest of El Centro, near the small Imperial Valley farm town of Seeley.

A magnitude 4.7 quake hit about 15 minutes later in the same area.

San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Hank Turner says some shaking was felt in downtown San Diego. Sheriff's and Fire Department dispatchers say no reports of damage were received.

San Diegans immediately responded to the quake on Social Media sites.

"In mission valley on 3rd floor apartment building. Bed moved a lot and some stuff on shelves fell. Also felt the 4.7,” tweeted @JonPlon.

"Another house moving quake just hit us in Coronado. So eerie,” tweeted @howardlindzon.

“I knew I wasn't crazy. My roommate didn't feel it but I did,” John McConnell wrote on Facebook.

“Good solid quick shake in west Chula Vista...didn't feel the 4.7,” wrote John Clowers.

Hundreds of aftershocks have hit along the Laguna Salada Fault since Easter's magnitude 7.2 earthquake, which killed two people in Mexicali and caused more than $100 million in damage in California.
