Quake Swarm Continues To Rattle East Bay Residents

DANVILLE (CBS SF) -- The ground near Danville's Monte Vista high school continued to rumble early Tuesday evening as the region was struck by another small magnitude 2.8 earthquake.

The latest quake happened at about 6:16 p.m. in the same area as the four temblors that rattled the area earlier Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The most recent quake was about two kilometers west northwest of the town of Diablo with a depth of approximately 7.5 kilometers. The quake was reported on social media by residents in San Ramon and other parts of the East Bay.

According to U.S.G.S., the area near the Calaveras Fault was first struck by a 2.8 magnitude quake at 1:32 a.m. just north of Monte Vista High School. It had a depth of 6.8 kilometers.

Three hours later, quakes measuring 2.6, 2.9 and 3.0 struck in rapid succession.

There were no injuries reported.

A 2.9 quake was reported in the same area early Monday.

Back in 2015, the Danville-San Ramon area was struck by dozens of small quakes also along the Calaveras Fault.
