LA QUINTA, Calif. - Several small earthquakes have shaken a remote area of Southern California.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the tremors over about a half-hour span late Wednesday morning had magnitudes of 3.4, 3.7 and 2.6.
All were centered a little more than a dozen miles southwest of La Quinta in Riverside County.
The area is mostly rugged wilderness.
