A preliminary 3.8 magnitude earthquake was reported in Gilroy Sunday afternoon, according to the USGS.
The USGS confirmed the quake was reportedly felt in Gilroy, San Martin, Morgan Hill, Hollister and Salinas.
Approximately 40 minutes after initial reports of the quake being a 3.9 magnitude, the USGS updated the quake’s magnitude to 3.8.
Revised again to 3.8 magnitude (now you know why we always say ‘preliminary’) for the earthquake that struck at 5:38 pm NE of Gilroy to the east of the Calaveras Fault. This shake map shows areas that likely experienced brief shaking (map still reads 3.7) @nbcbayarea pic.twitter.com/9JGapzQtBy
