U.S. Geological Survey map shows the location of the earthquake north of Borrego Springs.

A magnitude 3.3 earthquake struck near Borrego Springs early Monday morning and light shaking could be felt as far west as Vista.

The quake struck just before 5:30 a.m., roughly 7.8 miles north-northeast of Borrego Springs, at a depth of about 6.8 miles, according to a computer-generated report from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Reports on the USGS “Did You Feel It?” map showed light shaking could be felt in Poway and Vista, as well as Palm Desert in Riverside County.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

Nearby Imperial County has been hit by swarms of small earthquakes south of the Salton Sea in recent weeks. Three small temblors have struck that area in the past 24 hours.
