WILLITS, 12/8/19 — A 3.0 earthquake rattled the hills and swayed the trees north of Lake Pillsbury, at 11:04 a.m. this morning.
The quake struck nine and a third miles (15 km) due north of Lake Pillsbury in the National Forest and at a depth of 1.74 miles (2.8 km), relatively deep compared to some other recent quakes.
The depth and distance from populated areas makes it unlikely that many people felt it, but it is possible some in Potter Valley, Willits, and even Covelo may have felt a sway, a jolt, or just a passing odd sensation in the inner ear.
For the more scientifically mind people out there, the exact numbers for the quake are as follows (UTC stands for Coordinated Universal Time, and is sometimes referred to as Greenwich Mean Time):
Time: 2019-12-08 19:03:51 (UTC)
