3.9 magnitude earthquake strikes Sonoma County near The Geysers27 August 2023 ❤ 2
On Tuesday, a 3.9 magnitude earthquake struck Sonoma County near The Geysers, a geothermal energy production facility located in the Mayacamas Mountains. The quake was felt by many people in the area, but no damage or injuries were reported.
The quake occurred at 8:45 p.m. local time and was centered about 4 miles east of The Geysers and 6 miles north-northeast of Cloverdale, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). It had a depth of about 2 miles below the surface.
The USGS said that earthquakes of this magnitude are usually felt by people in the area but rarely cause any damage or injuries. However, it is possible for larger earthquakes to occur in the same area and cause more significant damage and injuries.
The Geysers is one of the worlds largest geothermal energy production facilities and produces electricity for much of Northern California. It is located on an active fault line and has experienced several earthquakes over the years, including a 5.7 magnitude quake in 2014 that caused some minor damage to buildings near The Geysers.
The USGS said that aftershocks are possible following Tuesdays earthquake but are not likely to be felt by people in the area or cause any additional damage or injuries. They also said that it is important for people living near active fault lines to be prepared for potential earthquakes by having an emergency plan in place and knowing what to do if an earthquake occurs.
