Three moderate earthquakes rattled the San Diego area, shaking downtown office buildings and homes in Coronado. The quakes, two of them centered in San Diego Bay, measured 4.2, 3.9 and 4.0, respectively, on the Richter scale. No injuries or damage was reported, although San Diego police officials reported fielding hundreds of calls from curious residents. A spokesman at Caltech in Pasadena said the quakes were part of a series.

Two minor earthquakes rattled San Diego Wednesday, but most residents apparently slept through the pre-dawn temblors, which continued a pattern of seismic activity triggered by three quakes earlier this week, authorities said. The first quake hit at 4:20 a.m. and measured 3.0 on the Richter scale. It was followed 17 minutes later by a second quake that registered 3.1.
