Notations:
Barstow, California, June 26, 2000 (Seismo-Watch) -- A light earthquake registering M4.6 struck the High Desert region of Southern California this morning, but was too remote to cause any damage.
 
The earthquake occurred at 8:43 a.m. about 42 miles east of Barstow and about 9 miles north-northwest of Ludlow in the Cady Mountains. It was an aftershock to the October 16 Lavic Lake (Hector Mine) M7.1 earthquake. We do not have a Moment magnitude or fault plane solution for this event as of yet.
 
It was followed seven minutes later by a M3.7 temblor in nearly the same location. There have been no other aftershocks at this time. The initial quake was widely felt in the surrounding region, including Barstow, Big Bear and San Bernardino, but was too weak and too remote to topple items from tables or shelves.
 
The quake occurred along the northern portion aftershock zone where a number of significant aftershocks have occurred in the past. The last M4 Lavic Lake aftershock occurred two weeks ago on June 11 and measured a M4.0. It was centered in the central portion of the aftershock zone near Lavic Lake playa and the epicenter of the main M7.1 jolt.
 
This morning's temblor was the largest quake in Southern California since a Lavic Lake M5.1 aftershock on October 22.
