A 5.4 magnitude earthquake rattled through Southern California at 4:53 p.m. on Wednesday.

“It was at a depth of 7.3 miles and at this time (5:10 p.m.) we have had about 500 people respond to our ‘Did you feel it?’ website,” said Leslie Gordon from the U.S. Geologic Survey.

The earthquake was centered 13 miles north/northwest from Borrego Springs and 28 miles south of Palm Springs. It was reportedly felt as south as San Diego and north in the Los Angeles area.

Over a dozen aftershocks measuring up to 3.0 magnitudge  have been registered in the area.

“Nothing fell off the shelves but my feet were tingling,” said Maureen Palacios, owner of Once Upon A Time bookstore in Montrose.

Ralphs and Vons markets in La Crescenta also shook a little but everything stayed on the shelves.

The strongest shaking was moderate near the epicenter, Gordon said.
