SAN DIEGO – A 3.1 magnitude earthquake rattled parts of San Diego County Tuesday morning.

The temblor hit shortly after 4 a.m. at a depth of around 3.7 miles. Its epicenter was seven miles southeast of the Palomar Observatory, nine miles west of Warner Springs, and about 19 miles northeast of Escondido, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

No damage was reported, but a handful of people in Pauma Valley and Valley Center told the USGS they felt weak shaking.
