Many Southern Californians say they were awakened by the shaking of a small earthquake this morning.

The 5.2 rattler occurred near Borrego Springs, CA., at 1:05 am, PST., Friday morning.

Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones said on Twitter that the quake originated near the San Jacinto fault at Anza Borrego State Park.

San Jacinto is the most active fault in Southern California.

So far there have been no reports of severe damage, however the offices of USA Today in Los Angeles reported swing blinds and a rolling sensation on the ninth floor of their office building located near LAX.
