Small Earthquake Stirs Central California

A small earthquake shook central California Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The 4.5-magnitude tremor struck Monterey County at 12:51 a.m., with an epicenter 6 miles south-southeast of San Juan Bautista and 45 miles southeast of San Jose.


A series of light aftershocks, including a 3.4 temblor, rattled the region in the early morning hours afterward.

There were no reports of damage or injuries. The quake was not even strong enough to shake books from shelves, the Los Angeles Times reported.
