NAPA (CBS SF) – North Bay residents who were shaken by Sunday morning’s South Napa Earthquake haven’t been given much of a chance to settle down, based on United States Geological Survey measurements of seismic activity in the area.
In just over 24 hours following the 3:20 a.m Sunday earthquake the USGS recorded 124 minor quakes and counting in the area. The seismic activity is clustered around the epicenter and to the north near the Geysers, a region known for regular ground shaking. The largest of the tremors was 3.6 magnitude, just hours after the initial earthquake.READ MORE: Stolen RV Pursuit Ends In Horrific San Ramon Crash
Many of the smaller quakes likely weren’t felt by anyone, some measuring lest than a full magnitude point. Here’s a look at all of the activity in the area:
Immediately following the quake seismologists said there was over a fifty percent chance that a magnitude 5.0 earthquake will hit within the week in the same area, though that percentage begins to drop significantly more than 24 hours after the initial earthquake.READ MORE: Torrential Rains Ease 'Exceptional' Drought Conditions In Marin County
State Seismologist John Parrish said minor shaking could continue for several weeks.
Seismologists believed there was a 5-percent chance of an even larger quake over magnitude 6.0 in the next few days.
