3.2-magnitude earthquake reported near The Geysers Monday evening

THE US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY HAS DOWNGRADED THIS QUAKE FROM 3.4 TO 3.2 IN MAGNITUDE.

 

THE GEYSERS – A 3.4-magnitude earthquake occurred Monday evening near The Geysers geothermal steamfield, shaking the Cobb area for several seconds, according to one area resident.


The quake was recorded by the US Geological Survey at 8:03 p.m.


Its epicenter was three miles east of The Geysers, four miles south southwest of Cobb and four miles west northwest of Anderson Springs at a depth of 1.4 miles, according to the US Geological Survey.


Cobb resident Roger Kinney said he was standing on his deck when he felt the earthquake, which he said lasted five to six seconds and felt bigger than the reported magnitude.


The US Geological Survey received shake reports from Healdsburg, Calistoga, Union City, San Ramon, El Cerrito and from faraway Poway, located 826 miles from the epicenter.


A 3.0-magnitude earthquake was reported two miles south southwest of Anderson Springs early Friday morning, as Lake County News has reported.
