A trio of small earthquakes hit the same exact spot over the last week. The largest of the three was measured at just 2.9 on the Richter scale.
While the shakes were not strong enough to do damage, they were remarkable in their consistency in location and proximity to Milpitas.
Each earthquake hit eight miles north-northeast of Milpitas and five miles south-southeast of Sunol. The first and biggest came is at 2.9 on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 9:57 p.m. The next, a 1.3, shook at 10:13 p.m. on Friday. The final earthquake in that same spot, a small 1.1, hit Sunday evening at 6:14 p.m.
The seismic activity occurred right on top of the Calaveras Fault, which runs from south of Gilroy almost all the way to Berkeley.
A total of 107 people reported feeling the 2.9 on the U.S. Geological Survey website, including three in Milpitas, five in San Jose and 74 in Fremont.Date Time Epicenter Fault Richter Scale Wednesday, Dec. 5 9:57 p.m. 8 miles NNE of Milpitas Calaveras 2.9 Friday, Dec. 7 10:13 p.m. 8 miles NNE of Milpitas
