LOS ANGELES (AP) - Parts of Southern California where a moderate earthquake occurred yesterday are being rattled by more than 100 aftershocks, the largest of them struck this afternoon.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-4.1 aftershock hit shortly after 2:30 p.m.

A magnitude-5.1 earthquake centered 25 miles south of Los Angeles struck Friday night, cracking foundations and causing evacuations. It was preceded by two smaller foreshocks.

Police in Fullerton say 20 apartment units and half a dozen homes were red-tagged because of damage, displacing 83 people.

No injuries have been reported in Orange County but business owners have been sweeping up shattered glass and restocking shelves. Utility crews are working to restore power and shut off gas leaks and water main breaks.
