4.0 Magnitude earthquake occurred this morning near Lake Elsinore, CA. A 4.0 Magnitude earthquake occurred this morning (around 2 AM PST) near Lake Elsinore, located in Southern California. According to the United States Geological Survey, it occurred about 7 miles below the surface and was felt from as far south as San Diego, as far east as Indigo, as far north as Palmdale and as far west as Thousand Oaks. The earthquake was strong enough to wake many from their nights sleep.         And some in the area had a little fun with the quake.   To put this earthquake into perspective, Southern California usually has 10 to 15 earthquakes that are greater than magnitude 4.0 every year. In any given year, this region can experience around 10,000 earthquakes, but most are small. For WeatherNation, I am Meteorologist Marcus Walter.
