A 3.6 magnitude earthquake occurred at 12:18 p.m. about 2.49 miles southeast of Loma Linda, according to U.S. Geological Survey.

There were no emergency calls related to the quake, San Bernardino County fire dispatchers said.

The USGS received about 60 reports from residents in San Bernardino and Riverside counties who felt shaking.

USGS Geophysicist Don Blakeman says quakes this size can be felt in populated areas, but typically are too small to cause any damage.
