Several Earthquakes Hit Central Coast
updated: Feb 23, 2017, 11:28 AM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

Edhat subscribers reported feeling several small earthquakes on Wednesday evening.

From Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning, three earthquakes hit the Central Coast area. At 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a 2.8 magnitude earthquake hit near Soledad, CA in south Monterey County.

Hours later around 8:45 p.m., a 3.3 magnitude earthquake struck 22km south of Solvang, CA in Santa Barbara County. Edhat readers from as far as Goleta and Carpinteria reported feeling a few jolts. According to USGS, the exact coordinates of the quake place it just off the coast of the Pacific Ocean between Gaviota and El Capitan.

Just after 9:00 a.m. Thursday, another 2.5 magnitude earthquake hit near Templeton, CA in San Luis Obispo County.

No damage has been reported due to any of these earthquakes.

Well after the fires then the floods comes the earthquakes right. A good time to be sure our EQ kits are handy and fresh ,Watch the animals and people they are the best forecast method to date , like lots of rats/ mice scurrying around at night, Also horses dogs and especially cats get all skittish right before a EQ. it,s a few hrs at best , Also the strong smell of oil has been a indicator in the past Santa Barbara EQ,s

My grandfather clock stops, if the shake is of any measurable consequence in my area of Santa Barbara. Tick, tick, tick. Not a whisper of cessation.

We are near Winchester Canyon and felt the one at 8:45. It was a quick bump, so I was surprised to find out it was a 3.3.

Felt the 8:45pm one. As if someone kicked the sofa. Looked at my dog, he was sound asleep. So, the poster who says "watch the animals"--not really.

Didn't feel a thing. The small ones are kinda fun, not the big ones tho

It would be interesting to have a big quake now, with the ground all liquid and squishy.

8:50, it was a sharp jolt. I've lived here all my life, they still scare me badly! Even the small ones. I just wait to see if it will go on, and let my adrenaline rush die down. I heard and felt it, a jolt to the house that, strangely, I felt as mountain to oceanside. I'm in San Roque, was watching tv.

always fun to fill out the "Did You Feel It?" report

878. Your "jolt" happened exactly an hour prior to others feeling it? Interesting.

Felt a two second jolt in San Roque at 8:49 pm Wednesday. Dog slept through it. SB peeps are incurring quite a few challenges as of late - let's hope this EQ is a singular event.

Didn't feel a thing, state/ alamar

Wonder if it's ground swelling/settling from the rain, rather than an earthquake like we think

I thought it was another eucalyptus tree falling in Ellwood.
