The USGS says the first quake Saturday measured at magnitude-3.9 and struck at 7:09 a.m., 16 miles east-northeast of Pine Valley, 29 miles east of Alpine, and 32 miles east-southeast of the San Diego Country Estates.

The second tremor, a magnitude-3.8, struck about 51 seconds later and virtually in the same location.
