CREATED Feb. 1, 2012

BRAWLEY, Calif. (AP) -- A magnitude-3.4 earthquake has shaken Southern California's desert Imperial County.

The U.S. Geological Survey says in a computer-generated report that Wednesday's 11:05 a.m. quake was centered four miles south of Brawley and nine miles north of El Centro.

A Brawley police spokeswoman says there are no reports of damage.

She describes the quake as a mild, rolling sensation rather than a jolt.
