This morning’s earthquake was a magnitude-4.4 that struck east of Blue Lake, according to the USGS.

The 10:23 a.m. temblor follows a swarm of quakes that have hit off the coast since Friday while two more unrelated seismic events occurred in Cutten on Monday.

The largest of the swarm was a magnitude-4.5 that hit on Saturday.
