TEHACHAPI, Calif. (CBS SF ) — The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.5 earthquake has struck in Central California.
The quake struck at 9:46 a.m. PST Monday 7 miles northeast of Bear Valley Springs, Calif. at a depth of 6.6 miles. Deeper quakes are less noticeable while a shallow quake–in the 0 to 40 mile depth range–can feel much stronger than their actual reported magnitude. Quakes just below the earth’s surface, in the 0 to 10 miles range, can cause even more damage at lower magnitudes.READ MORE: San Jose Man Charged In 'Horrific' September Murder Of 72-Year-Old
