LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- At least two moderate aftershocks, and possibly as many as seven, rumbled across Southern California Sunday, a day after a wave of earthquakes hit the region. No injuries or serious damage were reported either day.
The first aftershock Sunday registered magnitude 4.9 and was centered about six miles west of Newhall, California, seismologist Steve Bryant said. It was followed by several smaller aftershocks.
Seismologists said the quakes, including Saturday's, were aftershocks of the devastating January 1994 Northridge quake that killed 72 and caused $25 billion in damage.
