A shallow magnitude 4.1 earthquake was reported Saturday afternoon one mile from Rowland Heights, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 2:32 p.m. at a depth of 5.6 miles. (It was originally reported as a 4.4 magnitude.)

The quake was centered not far from the epicenter of Friday's 5.1 temblor in La Habra. There have been more than a hundred aftershocks since then, but this one was the largest.
Saturday's quake was felt across a large area of Southern California. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
Across Northern Orange County, officials were tallying moderate damage from Friday's quake. Much of the damage was in La Habra, Fullerton and Brea.
Crews were working to repair broken water mains, leaking gas lines and other damage.
At least seven 8-inch water mains were broken, leaving an estimated 100 homes and businesses without water Saturday morning, officials said.
