The Kern County quake came less than an hour after two moderate earthquakes shook an area west of El Centro in the Imperial Valley.  A magnitude 5.0 quake struck just after 11:30 Saturday morning.  It was centered 16 miles west southwest of El Centro.  That was followed by a magnitude 4.7 temblor 15 minutes later in the same area.
