WILLITS, 4/30/19 — Another smallish earthquake shook Mendocino County at 5:26 p.m. today, marking at least the third noticeable temblor to be felt in the county in the last 48 hours. The quake hit as an abrupt jolt in Willits.
According to information from Cal Tech it measured 2.9 and was centered roughly between Willits and Redwood Valley, where the other recent quakes have struck.
The United States Geological Survey has confirmed that the quake measured 2.9 in magnitude, and was located only .6 kilometers below the surface of the earth. It struck with a few hundred yards of where the past two noticeable tremors had their epicenters, that is, just west of Tomki Rd., north of Redwood Valley and south of the Abhayagiri Monastery — or six miles north-northwest of the center of Redwood Valley.
We will continue to update.
