A 4.6-magnitude earthquake was reported near Big Bear Lake Saturday morning, according to the US Geological Survey.

The first quake was reported at 9:59 a.m. about seven miles from the lake. An aftershock, a magnitude-2.7, was reported within about two minutes of the original temblor.

No damage had been reported as of 10:10 a.m., according to the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

A SigAlert was issued for all lanes of the 18 Freeway near Big Bear Lake after reports of rock slides about a half hour after the earthquake. The highway was later reopened. It was unclear whether the quake and SigAlert were connected.

Several people had called NBC4 to report feeling the quake. People on Facebook reported feeling the temblor in Palm Springs area, Huntington Beach, Covina, Murrieta and Anaheim.
