A small swarm of earthquakes struck again Tuesday in the area around Hollister where a 4.7M quake struck two weeks ago.
The first of the earthquakes, with a magnitude of 3.5, struck at 1:34 a.m., and there was another 3.2M quake eight minutes later, at 1:42 a.m., as SFGate reports. Then a slightly larger, 3.8M earthquake hit the area at 8:21 a.m., per the USGS, with an epicenter 14.1 km (8.7 mi) from Tres Pinos, and 13.8 miles south-southeast of Hollister.
Shaking appears to have been felt as far west as Salinas, and as far north as Hollister.
The region's recent paranoia about a coming earthquake, pegged to the 30th anniversary of Loma Prieta, seems to have abated with the distraction of the PG&E shutoffs and the Kincade Fire breaking out last week.
This area of San Benito County near Salinas and Hollister is on the San Andreas Fault and sees frequent small earthquakes.
