The swarm of small earthquakes continues to shake the East Bay, with four tremors overnight and into Tuesday morning centered near Mount Diablo, registering a 3.0, 2.9, 2.8, and 2.6 magnitude according to the United States Geological Survey.

The United States Geological Survey reports a preliminary magnitude 2.9 earthquake struck near Diablo, CA on Monday. The quake hit at 12:49 AM local time at a depth of 7 kilometers.A second 2.5 earthquake struck near Diablo at 2:31 AM local time at a depth of 6 kilometers.

Mexico City got a substantial warning before the shaking from a distant earthquake arrived Friday — some 30 to 60 seconds broadcast over loudspeakers from an earthquake early warning system. It was another success for Mexico City’s earthquake warning system — one which California, Oregon and Washington state still lack, and one that is an ongoing target for elimination by President Trump. The Trump administration’s budget proposal released last week again...

The lack of an earthquake early-warning system is again tormenting seismologists in California after Mexico City twice utilized the technology in the past week, giving people a head start of 30 seconds to a minute to take cover or exit an unsafe building. A magnitude 5.9 earthquake in southern Mexico early Monday appeared to be an aftershock from a 7.2-magnitude temblor that hit Friday. Both triggered seismic alarms that echoed across the capital. The tremors...

A swarm of small earthquakes that never surpassed a magnitude of 3.0 were reported early Tuesday near Mount Diablo, according to the United States Geological Survey. The temblors reached a magnitude of 3.0, 2.9, 2.8 and 2.6, providing the latest installment in a series of swarms that have hit the region over the past week. At least 33 small earthquakes of similar magnitude have gently rocked the region this year, according to the USGS. “This...

A remarkable collaboration between atmospheric science and geophysics could change the way we think about storms and seismicity, and could lead to an answer to the often-asked 'Are hurricanes getting stronger?' The team has identified the seismic footprint of typhoons and hurricanes, which allows climate scientists to add decades to their dataset of powerful storms.

Geophysicists have obtained detailed three-dimensional images of a dangerous megathrust fault west of Costa Rica where two plates of the Earth's crust collide. The images reveal features of the fault surface, including long grooves or corrugations, that may determine how the fault will slip in an earthquake.

Shutting down oil and gas wastewater injection wells may not stop human-induced earthquakes quickly, say seismologists. The scientists analyzed earthquakes at DFW Airport that began in 2008 and found that even though wastewater injection was halted after a year, earthquakes continued for at least seven more years. They concluded that high-volume injection, even for a short time, can induce long-lasting seismicity when it's near a critically stressed fault.

A comprehensive analysis of 101 major earthquakes around the Pacific ring of fire between 1990 and 2016 shows that most of the aftershock activity occurred on the margins of the areas where the faults slipped a lot during the main earthquakes. The findings support the idea that the area of large slip during a major earthquake is unlikely to rupture again for a substantial time.
