4. Mild Earthquake Shakes California Desert
Edited on Sun Jun-12-05 11:06 AM by maddezmom
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - A mild earthquake shook the desert early Sunday but there were no immediate reports of any injuries or damage, authorities said.

The magnitude-5.6 quake struck about 8:40 p.m. and was centered 20 miles south of Palm Springs, according to a preliminary report by the U.S. Geological Survey.

A dispatcher with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said she received dozens of calls about the quake but hadn't received any word about injuries or damage.

The quake was felt as far west as Los Angeles, where it rolled for several seconds, and as far south as San Diego, 75 miles southwest of Palm Springs, where hundreds of scientists gathered for a diabetes conference.
