3.8 quake reported at The Geysers early Sunday

THE GEYSERS – A 3.8-magnitude earthquake rocked The Geysers area early Sunday morning and was reportedly felt by people around the state.


The quake was reported at 4:26 a.m., according to the US Geological Survey.


The agency reported that the quake was recorded two miles east southeast of The Geysers, four miles southwest of Cobb and four miles west of Anderson Springs at a depth of 2.7 miles.


The US Geological Survey received 76 shake reports from around California and one from Carson City, Nev.
