Series Of Quakes Rattle San Andreas Fault

Three small earthquakes struck Monterey County on Thursday evening, officials said.

The first quake hit near Soledad, Calif., at 5:17 p.m. with a magnitude of 2.9 and a depth of 5 kilometers. About two hours later, a second quake, with a 3.2 magnitude and a depth of 5 kilometers, shook Soledad once more. At 8:09 p.m., a 3.8 quake of the same depth followed.

No injuries or damages were reported.

Monterey County has been rocked by quakes since Monday, when a 4.6 magnitude earthquake landed 13 miles northeast of Gonzalez. It was felt more than 90 miles away in San Francisco.
