Pair Of Quakes In Channel Islands; No Damage Reported

Oct 4, 2018

A pair of earthquakes rocked some of the Channel Islands.

A magnitude 3.3 quake hit the San Clemente Island area at 10:58 a.m. Thursday, followed by a 3.0 at 11:14. Both quakes were centered about six miles southeast of the island. San Clemente Island isn’t open to the public, because the 56 square mile island is home to some military facilities.

There are no reports of damage, or people feeling the quakes onshore. San Clemente Island is about 60 miles southwest of Dana Point, in Orange County.
