LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) _ A magnitude 4.7 earthquake shook Riverside County on Sunday but no injuries or damage were reported, authorities said.

The jolt at 10:29 a.m. was centered near Lake Elsinore, about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was felt as far away as San Diego.

``There was a lot of shaking in the shop for a few seconds. All my co-workers looked at each other and said 'earthquake!''' said Myong Kim, an employee at the Latte Express coffee shop in Lake Elsinore. ``It was a little scary but no damage.''

The quake struck under the Santa Ana Mountains in a remote area of the Cleveland National Forest along a well-known fault that runs from Mexico to Los Angeles.

Many aftershocks followed in the next few hours, some as big as magnitude 2.5.
