5.7 earthquake rattles Southern California

There are frayed nerves but little damage in Southern California following a moderate earthquake that rattled San Diego and Los Angeles.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was centered about 85 miles east of San Diego and struck at 9:26 p.m. It had a 5.7 magnitude.

Lots of aftershocks have been reported.

Emergency officials in San Diego County say calls to all cities in the county found no reports of significant damage. A county supervisor says the quake "thumped really hard."

The quake caused a momentary pause at the Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game in San Diego. Fans cheered when the public address announcer asked them to remain calm.

In the Los Angeles area, the quake was felt as a gentle rolling motion. According to online citizen reports compiled by the USGS, more than 1,000 people reported feeling the shaking.

There are no reports of injuries or deaths.
