    4.9-magnitude quake hits near Anza; felt in Palm Springs


    A 4.9-magnitude earthquake struck near Anza, California, which rattled parts of Southern California on Friday.

    The temblor struck at 6:53 p.m. about 10 miles east of Anza, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its epicenter was near the Santa Rosa Mountain and Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians Reservation. 

    It was felt strongly in Palm Springs, shaking homes, and many other communities. From the time of the initial quake to 9:07 p.m., there were eight aftershocks that ranged in magnitude from 2.6 to 3.7.

    The Anza quake was initially measured as a 4.64 temblor. 

    There have been no initial reports of damage, Riverside County officials said on Twitter. 

    Debra Hovel, a Palm Springs resident who is a co-founder of Makerville, an artist studio and retreat near Anza off Highway 74, felt the tremor.

    “Wow!” she said. “We just never feel quakes at Makerville. Sitting (at) our dining room table in the studio, we watched as paintings fell to the floor and we wondered if a bomb had fallen. Happily, it all ended quickly.”
