Around 5:35, a magnitude 3.0 quake struck near American Canyon at a depth of nearly 8 miles below the earth’s surface.
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.
No damage or injuries were immediately reported, and no further details were immediately available.READ MORE: CDC Approves Wide Range of Options for COVID Boosters
