The San Andreas Fault is restless.
Starting with Tuesdayâ€™s 10:15 a.m. 6.0 earthquake, the fault has provided Central California with a number of jolts and â€œDid you feel that?â€? moments.
Tuesdayâ€™s shaker was followed a few minutes later by a 5.0 and then a number of smaller quakes. Almost exactly 24 hours later, a 5.0 and a 4.5 rumbled through the area.
All the quakes were centered a few miles away from Monterey Countyâ€™s Parkfield â€” which describes itself as the â€œEarthquake Capital of the Worldâ€? â€” and about 20 miles north of Paso Robles.
No injuries and light damage to some buildings has been reported. Officials at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant and Morro Bayâ€™s Duke energy plant say their facilities were undamaged.
As is to be expected, the quakes have rattled a region that is in some ways still reeling from last Decemberâ€™s deadly 6.5 quake. After this weekâ€™s temblors, callers flooded local media outlets with reports and comparisons.
