I was in the Bay Area on business last week and did not feel the swarm of small earthquakes that hit San Ramon. Is it the precursor to the Big One that everyone expects? Stephanie Pappas
A handful of the San Ramon quakes have rattled locals, including a magnitude-3.6 quake that hit on Oct. 19 and a magnitude-3.1 quake recorded on Oct. 27, both causing weak to light shaking in the East Bay (the eastern part of the San Francisco Bay area).
A whopping 408 earthquakes have hit San Ramon, California, in the past two weeks, including 11 in one 24-hour stretch.
Officials of the U.S. Geological Survey say to move along, there’s nothing to see here.
Uh huh. Sure.
