A series of five temblors struck California in about 18 hours, three of them near the small town of Cabazon, according to the US Geological Survey.
Just before 5 a.m. (8 a.m. ET) Tuesday, two small earthquakes struck within minutes of each other, roughly 7 miles north of the Southern California city of 4,000. Cabazon is about 45 miles east of the Los Angeles suburb, Riverside.
The first quake was a 4.5 magnitude, while the second was a 3.2, the USGS reported.
