MENDOCINO Co., 12/6/20 — A notable quake, large enough to wake some people up, rolled through Lake and Mendocino counties this morning at about 7:03 a.m. The quake had a magnitude of 4.4, according to the USGS, and had its epicenter in the hills just west of the county line with Lake, a few miles northeast of Hopland.
So far no substantial damage has been reported. If you felt it you can tell the USGS at this website.
It was actually a fair sized earthquake. There were a number of comments on an earthquake website that said they felt it strongly in Ukiah. It was centered about 5 miles northeast of Hopland.
I felt it rather strongly. I’m the second house on the corner of Knob Hill and Madrone Dr. I’ve removed my carpet in my house and my bed has rollers. The quake shoved my bed (queen size) into the wall and back waking me up. My top cabinets in the kitchen opened and dry goods fell out. Nothing broken. My boarder collie ran thru the house barking. House forced in a north and south motion parallel to Knob Hill. Have lived here 33 years and that’s was the strongest one I’ve felt. I grew up in the Santa Clara valley and have been thru many a quake down there.
