Two more moderate quakes occur at The Geysers

THE US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY HAS DOWNGRADED THE QUAKE ORIGINALLY REPORTED AS A 3.0 TO A 2.9. THE ARTICLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THAT.

 

THE GEYSERS – The Geysers and Cobb area experienced two more earthquakes close to or above 3.0 magnitude on Sunday.


The US Geological Survey reported that a 3.0-magnitude quake occurred at 4:31 a.m. It was centered two miles north of The Geysers, five miles west of Cobb and seven miles west northwest of Anderson Springs.That quake was later downgraded to 2.9.


The quake occurred at a depth of 1.7 miles, and was reportedly felt nearly 700 miles away in Claremont, according to the US Geological Survey's shake reports.


That quake was followed 18 minutes later by a 3.1-magnitude quake.


Occurring at 4:49 a.m., the second quake was measured at a depth of two miles, the US Geological Survey reported.


Its epicenter appeared to be in the same spot as the first quakes – two miles north of The Geysers, five miles west of Cobb and seven miles west northwest of Anderson Springs, based on monitoring reports.


Shake reports on the second quake came from Middletown, Concord and San Francisco.


Over the last several weeks The Geysers area has seen a spike in quakes measuring 3.0 and above, as Lake County News has reported.


Two earthquakes occurred July 6, measuring 3.7 and 3.8 on the Richter Scale, which followed two quakes above 3.0 the previous week.
