South Bay earthquakes felt as far as San Francisco

Bay Area

SAN JOSE (KRON) — Two earthquakes shook the South Bay on Tuesday morning.

They came one after the other along the Calaveras Fault in Santa Clara County.

The first was a 4.0 magnitude earthquake about six miles northeast of San Martin around 6:48 a.m., according to USGS, and another shortly after east of Morgan Hill.

“There have been larger events felt along this fault decades ago,” said Keith Knudsen, Deputy Director of USGS Earthquake Science Center.
