SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - Authorities say an earlier tsunami warning has now been cancelled and there have been no immediate reports of damage or injuries after a strong magnitude-7.4 earthquake and a second, magnitude-5.4 temblor struck off the coast of El Salvador.
David Walsh, an oceanographer with the Pacific Tsunami Center in Hawaii, said a minor, 7.8-inch swell was registered off El Salvador.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported on its web site that the quake was located 86 miles south-southwest of San Miguel at a depth of 32.9 miles. The second quake registered about an hour later in the same area.
On Sunday, dozens of small to moderate earthquakes struck southeastern California, knocking trailer homes off their foundations and shattering windows in a small farming town east of San Diego.
