      Cluster of moderate Callifornia quakes continues

      California earthquake swarm 'pretty bad,' buildings damaged. Parts of Southern California were rattled by the earthquake swarm that officials said could last for several days. Hardest hit was Imperial County, where most quakes were centered. A number of families were displaced and hospital patients evacuated. The series of small to moderate earthquakes shattered windows and knocked trailer homes off their foundations in a small farming town east of San Diego.
      More quakes in Southern California 'quake storm' - on Sunday, the region experienced about 300 temblors throughout the day. USGS seismographs and analysis computers were overwhelmed by the rash of rattling that began at sunrise, and reached a crescendo with a magnitude 5.3 quake just after 12:30 p.m. It was followed by a 4.9 shaker within two minutes.
      The earthquake swarm that has been rocking Southern California since Sunday has been the area's STRONGEST SUCH SWARM IN 30 YEARS.
      The seismic activity is not unusual for the area around Brawley. Previous swarms - some of which were recorded as early as the 1930s - weren't precursors to a bigger quake, but "that's not to say it won't happen. At the very least, use this is a reminder: We live in earthquake country."
