Real Earthquake Soon After Earthquake Drill


Three days after the 10/18 statewide ShakeOut earthquake drill, a 5.3 earthquake rattled Central California followed by four aftershocks that registered 2.5 or above on the Richter scale. Centered near King City, the tremor could be felt as far away as San Francisco and Lompoc. It didn’t cause any damage. USGS geophysicists said the quake struck in a seismically active area close to the San Andreas Fault.
