3.5 earthquake jolts Danville

Danville residents felt a sharp jerk Monday afternoon as an earthquake measuring 3.5 on the Richter scale struck the northern portion of town. The U.S. Geological Survey reports the quake occurred at 3:15 p.m., with the epicenter located just northeast of the intersection of Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Tassajara. The depth was reported to be 5 miles.

Danville police said no damage was reported due to the quake. One resident did call in, they said, to request an officer investigate strange shaking. Officers explained to the new California resident that the town had just experienced an earthquake.

At 3:30 p.m. there was a 1.9 aftershock, according to U.S.G.S. Then at 4:52 p.m. there was another quake of 2.7 magnitude.
