Residents of some areas of central California received a “good morning” from Mother Nature on Tuesday.
The 7:14 a.m. earthquake was initially measured at 3.8, but the magnitude was revised to 3.5.
No damage was reported or expected.
The epicenter of the earthquake was at 36.563N 121.075W, according to the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory. The location is about four miles east-northeast of Pinnacles, 17 miles east-northeast of Soledad, 19 miles north-northeast of Greenfield, 24 miles north of King City, and 70 miles southeast of San Jose City Hall.
The quake occurred about four or miles beneath the surface.
Earthquakes long ago made themselves at home in this region of California.
"Within the next 30 years the probability is 62 percent that an earthquake measuring >=6.7 will occur in the Bay Area," according to the USGS.
