The largest of this recent batch was a 5.1 magnitude hitting off the northern California coast. No immediate reports of casualties, as reported by the USGS.
The epicenter of the tremor, which occurred at 2:26 am (0926 GMT), was located 30 kilometers (18 miles) west of the town of Petrolia, the US Geological Survey said. The reading was based on the open-ended Moment Magnitude scale, now used by US seismologists, which measures the area of the fault that ruptured and the total energy released.
