Magnitude 6.2 earthquake off Baja California shakes parts of San Diego County

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake erupted beneath the ocean floor off Baja California at 6:21 a.m. Tuesday, generating energy that was briefly but widely felt across many areas of San Diego County, according to the U.S. Geological Survey,

The temblor originated off the coast of Vicente Guerrero, Mexico — about 105 miles south of Ensenada and roughly 192 miles southeast of San Diego. There was no immediate indication that the quake would produce a tsunami.

The USGS says the shaking was felt in San Ysidro, Imperial Beach, Del Mar, San Diego, La Jolla, Lakeside, Encinitas, El Cajon, Lemon Grove, Miramar, Chula Vista, Santee, Oceanside and Borrego Springs. Shaking also was felt in Imperial County, notably El Centro.
