Tuesday evening quake reported near The Geysers

THE GEYSERS – A 3.0-magnitude earthquake was reported near The Geysers Tuesday evening.


The quake, recorded at a depth of 1.1 miles at 7:31 p.m., was centered three miles east of The Geysers, four miles south southwest of Cobb and four miles west northwest of Anderson Springs, according to the US Geological Survey.


Four people reported to the US Geological Survey that they felt the quake – two in Cobb, one in Middletown and one in Longview, 823 miles away.


The last quake of 3.0 magnitude or above recorded in the county occurred on Dec. 21, as Lake County News has reported.


Some Cobb-area residents have considered recent earthquake activity out of season.


However, giving another viewpoint, Anderson Springs resident Meriel Medrano believes winter – particularly January and February – are actually the worst times of the year for the area's seismic activity.


Medrano said that they continue to have many small quakes in the area but the larger quakes seem not to be occurring as often.


The shallower earthquakes have been linked to geothermal production at The Geysers, as Lake County News has reported.
