Aftershocks continue to shake Southern California

Posted:

CALEXICO, Calif. (AP) -- Aftershocks continue to jolt Southern California in the wake of a powerful weekend earthquake in Mexico.

Calexico, Calif., police Lt. Jesus (hay-SOOS') Serrano says no injuries have been reported in the border town, but windows shattered, a few bricks fell and some cracks appeared in century-old buildings. Police have cordoned off downtown and businesses are closed Monday.

Calexico is the U.S. area hardest hit by Sunday's 7.2-magnitude quake in Mexico that killed two people and injured at least 100, including one person in the California town of El Centro.

Several aftershocks hit Monday morning, including a 5.1-magnitude temblor that struck at about 4:15 a.m. Monday near El Centro.
