Share post:

TRES PINOS, Calif. — On Tuesday afternoon, a magnitude 4.5 earthquake hit the coast of Central California near the town of Tres Pinos in San Benito County. The earthquake occurred at 3:23 pm, as per the United States Geological Survey.

The quake happened just moments after a much larger magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck off the coast of Panama, causing widespread concern in the region. Officials, however, stated that there is no likelihood of a tsunami hitting the California coast.

At this point, it is uncertain if any damage has been caused by the earthquake. A team of experts is currently surveying the area to assess the extent of the damage. According to eyewitnesses, the quake caused some buildings to shake, but no significant damage has been reported yet.

Earthquakes are not uncommon in California, which is situated in a region prone to seismic activity. While most earthquakes are small, there have been several large earthquakes in the past that have caused extensive damage to the region.

Residents in the area are advised to stay alert and prepared in the event of any future seismic activity.
