LOS ANGELES (AP) - There are no reports of damage or injury from a pair of small earthquakes that struck in Southern California's desert region.

The US Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.4 quake hit at 12:14 p.m. Sunday about eight miles northeast of Indio and nine miles from Indio.

A magnitude 3.1 earthquake struck about an hour and a half later less than miles to the north. The USGS says the epicenter of the second quake was 41 miles from Twentynine Palms, 41 miles from Yucca Valley and 43 miles from Barstow.

Sheriff's dispatchers say there were no reports of damage or injury from either quake.
