A 4.1 magnitude earthquake shook San Benito County shortly before 6 a.m. Friday, and several smaller aftershocks hit the Tres Pinos area after the initial one, according to the U.S. Geological Society. A 3.6 magnitude quake shook the area at 6:22 a.m.
The USGS revised the initial measurement of 4.2 to 4.0, and then back to 4.1 magnitude, according to the agency’s website. The second-largest quake was initially reported at 3.8 but was revised to 3.6.
