Two earthquakes hit the San Francisco Bay Area
On Sunday, September 27, two 3,4 magnitude earthquakes hit the same area of Northern California, officials said. Writes about it Fox News.
The US Geological Survey said the first earthquake occurred at 15:54 pm local time at a depth of 3,3 miles (5,3 km), less than 6 miles (9,6 km) northeast of Milpitas along the Calaveras reservoir.
A second earthquake was reported at about 22:20 pm local time at a depth of 2,7 miles (4,3 km) in the same area.
Damage or injury from earthquakes has not been reported.
Residents of the San Francisco Bay Area have felt earthquakes in Milpitas, Fremont, and parts of San Jose.
A little over a month ago, two small earthquakes of a similar size occurred in the reservoir.
This region is located along the unstable Ring of Fire seismic fault system that surrounds the Pacific Ocean.
This area contains most of the Earth's subduction zones, where oceanic plates slide beneath lighter continental plates.
Earthquakes tend to occur when these plates scratch or settle beneath each other, and when they do occur at sea, it can trigger a tsunami.
