An earthquake rocked Southern California on Monday, shaking the Los Angeles area and forcing a halt to the Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game in San Diego.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-5.7 quake was centered five miles southeast of Ocotillo near the U.S.-Mexico border. It struck Monday at about 9:30 PDT.
It was felt as a gentle rolling motion in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County. San Diego’s Petco Park swayed during an earthquake, and the public address announced asked that everyone remain calm. The crowd cheered.
