Early Thursday morning a number of small earthquakes struck north of Morgan Hill. This comes after a similar tremor struck the area early Tuesday morning (a 2.3 magnitude).
The most recent earthquake happened just before 3 a.m. today. The magnitude 2.8 earthquake was centered about 9 miles north of Morgan Hill. A few hours earlier two similar-sized tremors also hit the area. A much smaller quake soon followed those two.
On Tuesday morning around 6:45 a.m., the 2.3 struck an area about a mile away from today's activity. There were no reports of any damage or injuries in any of the earthquakes.
The last major tremor to hit the Morgan Hill area happened back in 1984. A magnitude 6.2 quake rocked the area causing more than $7-million in damages. It was strong enough to be felt in Bakersfield and even in Reno, Nevada. Twenty-one people were reportedly injured.
