magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck the Salton Sea area of southern California just before 2pm local time today, and was felt from Yuma to Bullhead City. There is a continuing swarm of aftershocks with the largest so far apparently a M4.8.
A magnitude 5.3 event hit at 12:32 pm today in the same area - a foreshock?
