A magnitude 4.2 earthquake shook Northern California residents on Wednesday, triggering a “ShakeAlert” throughout the region.
The earthquake occurred in the vicinity of Isleton, a small community in Sacramento County, at around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
City manager Chuck Bergson of Isleton mentioned feeling some shaking at City Hall during the earthquake and reported that the levees along the Delta appeared to be undamaged.
Wednesday’s earthquake comes a day before the annual Great ShakeOut, a global drill where emergency systems will be tested for earthquake preparedness. As a part of this, thousands of MyShake app users will get an earthquake test alert on Thursday.
The quake also occurred one day after the 34th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake that rocked the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989, killing 63 people and injuring nearly 3,800 others. The devastation caused up to $10 billion in damage.
