The quake, which occurred at 9:29 a.m., focused near Isleton, according to the service’s website.

Stockton said the earthquake shook the marina office for about a minute, but did not appear to have less than a mile south of the epicenter of the earthquake, which was on the island of Brannan on the caused permanent damage, which is built on piles near an entrance to the San Joaquin River. The area is labyrinth of floating roads through Dekrata, according to USGS.

Californians said they felt light vibrations as far south as Stockton and as far north as Sacramento, according to the USGS map.

Cindy Gollihar, an employee at the extensive resort of Vieira between Isleton and Rio Vista, said she was “on the telephone with one of the clients, so it was a gigantic shock and I freak out”.

Gollihar said some objects fell from shelves and walls, but there was no significant damage to the building. He said he received a restraining notice “possibly 3 minutes after the” incident.

Initial notifications showed that a higher-size earthquake had struck, but rapid USGS revisions downgraded the earthquake to 4.1.
