SAN DIEGO — Another small earthquake was felt in parts of San Diego Sunday morning, following similarly minor quakes on Friday and Saturday.

The preliminary 3.6-magnitude earthquake was recorded near the Warner Springs area of rural northeast San Diego County around 7:15 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The jolt was felt in parts of Escondido, Oceanside, Poway, Ramona, Encinitas, La Mesa and into the city of San Diego in neighborhoods like Del Cerro, 4S Ranch and Rancho Bernardo.

On Saturday, a magnitude 3.2 earthquake struck off the coast of San Diego and was felt in parts of the city. And late Friday evening, a 3.7-magnitude quake produced some shaking in San Diego after it broke along the Elsinore fault about five miles from the Palomar Observatory.
