Second 3.5 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Vallejo

VALLEJO (CBS SF) – An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.5 shook Solano County and nearby regions Thursday morning, less than 24 hours after a quake of similar magnitude rattled the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake struck at 9:13 a.m. and was centered about 2 miles south of Vallejo, according to the USGS. Shaking could be felt in other Bay Area cities, including Martinez.

The earthquake had a depth of 5.7 miles. The initial magnitude was recorded as 3.7, but was revised a short time later to 3.5.

Vallejo Police Sgt. Jeff Bassett says he’s seen no immediate reports of injury or damage. He described the quake as “quick and abrupt,” only lasting about one second.

Another 3.5-magnitude quake struck Wednesday at 6:09 p.m., and its epicenter was located 3 miles south of Vallejo, according to the USGS.
