This is important, there was only one quake, they had to clean up the data, and this happens often. She is a seismologist.

There was only one M5.2. Second M5 was a split of the data by automated system. The data’s been cleaned up and only one EQ on page now

Jun 10,2016 (San Diego) One shallow earthquake occurred near Borrego at 1:05 in the morning, This quake was felt far and wide and it was pretty shallow.  with a depth of 12 kilometers, that be 7.2 miles. It happened at the San Jacinto fault, very active, near where a 6.0 happened in 1937 and a 5.3 in 1980. 

Multiple aftershocks have been felt across the region, with most under 3 in the Richter scale, though a few larger events are possible. We know the San Diego Fire Department went into earthquake protocols, checking for damage and casualties, reporting neither of them. So did CAL FIRE and other fire departments across the region. For example the Riverside unit of CAL FIRE posted this tweet on their official feed.

No reports of injury or damage in RCOFD response area. Engines removed from apparatus bays as precaution.
