There were three small earthquakes at 4:38 a.m before the largest shock, these measured 2.6, 2.8, and 3.3 in magnitude with the largest temblor measured, occurring at 7:31 a.m. at a depth of 1.49 miles. This was quickly followed by a cluster of 2.7, 2.5, 2.7, 2.9 and 3.0 quakes.

No reports of damage or injuries have been made at this time..
