Light quake rattles nerves in Southern California

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A small earthquake has rattled nerves near the Southern California community of Big Bear Lake.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor hit about 10 a.m. Saturday, centered about 7 miles northwest of the lake resort.

It had a preliminary 4.6 magnitude — considered a light quake.

Randy Naquin of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says he had no reports of damage.
