TEMPLETON, Calif. Seismologist Dale Grant of the U.S. Geological Survey says the
magnitude-4.0 quake struck at 8:20 p.m. Saturday and was centered
five miles west of the town of Templeton and eight miles southwest
of the much larger Paso Robles, at a depth of about three miles.
Grant says damages are rare at magnitude-4.0 but "people really
felt it." He says about 1,000 people from the area went to the
USGS Web site and reported the shaking.
San Luis Obispo County sheriff's Sgt. Dale Strobridge says his
station received a handful of calls about the quake, but none
reported any problems.
