Thanks for the heads up. Semi-active AM in the Bay Area as well. 3.6 in Berkley (same location as the two shakers we got last week), as well as
another "odd ball" south of the city (minor, but usually an inactive spot)...
Didn't see the Shasta data this AM, so that post IS HELPFUL! thanks.
And: to the gentleman who thinks we shouldn't discuss quakes lower than a six...a few comments:
1) there are literally 15 quakes a day in the SF area we NEVER discuss on here (I.e. All quakes at the Geysers, CA for geological reasons i won't get
2) what we do comment on and SHOULD comment on are quakes in a location or a magnitude that is "not normal" on a weekly or monthly basis. The OP's
quake fits that bill.
3) certain faults matter more than others. Berkley is a big deal to us in the Bay Area....that fault can produce very big quakes...we watch it like a
hawk...the OP's quake observation is helpful to those who watch this particularly active area
4) bigger than a 6? Really? Have you been in a 6? Not all quakes are created equal....and a 6 at the right depth, on the right fault, and certain
other variables is one HECK of a baseline.....sorry....just my humble opinion.
We'll keep our eyes on the data here in SF. Be well, everyone!!!
