Did you feel them? A cluster of four earthquakes centered near Mountain View Cemetery rocked the Oakland area, if gently, last night with the first at 2:05 a.m. That, KRON 4 writes by way of USGS data, was magnitude 1.7, 4.2 miles deep, and centered on Truitt Lane off Clarewood Drive.
15 minutes later, the second quake struck at 2:20 a.m. with a magnitude of 2.4. That was 3.2 miles deep, its epicenter at the southern end of the Mountain View Cemetery.
Five minutes after that, a 1.0 magnitude quake about 3.5 miles deep struck nearby. One more aftershock rolled through at 2:45 a.m. with a 1.5 magnitude, also near the southern tip of the Mountain View Cemetery.
Some Twitter users were shaken but not, so to speak, "shook."
I just felt a jolting earthquake in Oakland 5 minutes ago.— Steve Franco (@SteveFranco) November 30, 2016
The epicenter of this mornings rumblings was west of some modest quakes that rolled through Oakland in mid-September.
