Did You Feel It? 2 Earthquakes Strike Near San Clemente Island

From Chula Vista to L.A., some residents said they could feel -- and were even woken up by -- two earthquakes that struck hours apart off the coast of San Clemente Island early Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported the first quake at 3:47 a.m. -- eight miles off the coast of San Clemente Island, and roughly 70 miles from San Diego’s coast.

It had a preliminary magnitude of 4.3.

Three hours later, the agency reported a second earthquake, with the same magnitude, that struck a mile away from the first.

“One good thing would be that the island would be the buffer in between the earthquake and of course our area,” NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen.

No tsunami warnings have been issued, and there have been no reports of damage.
