TRONA, Calif. (AP) - A small earthquake has struck a remote desert near Death Valley but no damage or injuries are reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a quake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.2 hit the Trona area of San Bernardino County at 10:08 a.m. Saturday. The epicenter is about six miles from Telescope Peak and about 44 miles northeast of Ridgecrest.
Dispatchers for the county Sheriff's Department and Ridgecrest police say they had no reports of injuries or damage.
A cluster of earthquakes - the largest a magnitude-4.1 - jolted the same area last month.
