Magnitude 4 Earthquake: Southern California

Summary

The red marker denotes the earthquake epicenter.

On Wed Sep 16th 2015 16:10:47 (UTC) the seismic network recorded an earthquake (preliminary 4.01 mw) located in Southern California. Seismic region California - Nevada Region.

The epicentral distance (i.e. distance separating the location to the epicenter) to the closest station TPFO in the network is 69.9 km.

If you felt the quake, the USGS would like to know. Please add your comments to the USGS page "Did you feel it?".
