Earthquake Recap: Two Small Shakes on Peninsula

Did you feel either little earthquake over the last week?

Two small earthquakes made waves on the Richter scale in San Mateo County this week, with the largest measured at just 1.2.

Generally, earthquakes that fail to break the 2-mark on the scale are difficult to feel far from the epicenter. No one reported feeling either of the earthquakes in San Mateo County this week on the U.S. Geological Survey website.
