    Some residents in San Diego's North County may have felt the jolt from an earthquake near Hemet in Riverside County.

    In the middle of  a swarm of earthquake activity reported from Canada including a 7.7 quake that triggered a tsunami in Hawaii, an earthquake occurred near Valle Vista.

    The California quake was much smaller but still registered a 3.9 magnitude at 12:47 a.m. Sunday according to the U.S. Geological Survey earthquake data.

    The epicenter of the Valle Vista quake was located approximately nine miles southeast of Hemet.

    However, people in San Diego reported feeling the quake from as far away as Escondido, El Cajon, La Mesa and La Jolla according to the USGS website.
