Recent Earthquakes in Northern California and Vicinity from the Rapid Earthquake Location ServiceEntry ID: NCEDC-FINGER-QUAKE
Abstract: [From Rapid Earthquake Location Service,
The Rapid Earthquake Location Service provides a list of magnitude 2 or greater
earthquakes recorded by the USGS Northern California Seismic Network and the
UCB Berkeley Digital Seismic Network during the last 3 days. All times are in
UTC (Universal Time), which is 8 hours ahead of PST and 7 hours ahead ... of PDT.
This catalog is valid for Central and Northern California (approximately north
of San Luis Obispo along the coast and 37 degrees N at the Nevada border).
Magnitudes are reported as local magnitude (Ml) or coda duration magnitude (Md)
for small events. Depth is in kilometers. Q is location quality, where the
quality of the location solution is A=E (A=good, E=bad), and '*' indicates the
solution is from an automated system and has not been reviewed by staff.
Note: This is PRELIMINARY information. Earthquakes before 00:00 UT today which
occur > ~50 km outside the boundaries of the network will not be listed unless
reviewed by seismologists.
