3.2-magnitude quake recorded at The Geysers Tuesday

THIS QUAKE ORIGINALLY WAS RATED AS 3.3 IN MAGNITUDE, BUT HAS BEEN DOWNGRADED TO 3.2.

 

THE GEYSERS – A 3.2-magnitude earthquake shook The Geysers area on Tuesday.


The quake occurred at 2:42 p.m. Tuesday, according to the US Geological Survey.


It was recorded at a depth of 1.4 miles three miles north northwest of The Geysers, six miles west of Cobb and eight miles west northwest of Anderson Springs, US Geological Survey data showed.


Quakes of 3.0 magnitude and above receive special cataloging status from the US Geological Survey, as previously reported by Lake County News.


Ten shake reports were received from six zip codes. Areas where reports came from included Cloverdale, Kelseyville, Lakeport, Hidden Valley Lake, Redding and Hanford – the latter a distance of 400 miles away from the epicenter, the survey reported.


Four aftershocks that were centered close to the epicenter of the 3.3-magnitude quake and ranging between 1.1 and 1.5 in magnitude followed the larger quake over a two-hour period, the US Geological Survey reported.


A 3.1-magnitude earthquake also was reported in Central California near Hollister at 12:23 a.m., according to the US Geological Survey, which was reportedly felt as far north as Windsor, in Sonoma County.


A 3.7-magnitude earthquake was reported June 15 two miles east of The Geysers, as Lake County News has reported.
