heggen continues our team coverage . the aftershocks had a lot of people nervous. >> the first earthquake got the balls attention, i live a mile away from the epicenter, i was in my car so i did not feel it, we are looking at the closest location and you see the swarm, the yellow dots indicate the center, the largest was the 3.9, the largest aftershock 3.0 and 2.6. we are possibly looking at more of the smaller aftershocks through this evening and for the next couple of days. this is just off of the calaveras fault, the one we are focused on for where the swarm occurred. there was a swarm of dozens of earthquakes in this location several years ago that were all mostly smaller than the 3.9 that struck before noon today. i will have a look at our next rain chance in a few minutes. joining me now live is usgs
geophysicist, brian kilgore, your impression on the earthquakes today ? >> i did not feel the earthquake but people felt it all over the bay area, down to santa cruz, up towards stockton. and further east. it was widely felt. i will say that earthquakes in the east bay on the calaveras fault are pretty common. there is nothing unusual about this. earthquakes like this are really to be expected. it has been quiet for a while so this was a surprise, one widely felt and got people's attention. >> it surprises people, definitely. today's was under a 4.0, what is the likelihood of a strong earthquake there? tell me about the aftershocks. >> there have been 12 smaller aftershocks since the earthquake, before noon, and
the most recent one was a 2.0. i sure reporter mentioned, the san ramon valley has experienced earthquake swarms over the years, there have been a half a dozen since 1970. whether this will turn out to be a swarm or just an earthquake with aftershocks, only time will tell. as far as the probability of a larger earthquake after this, of course it is possible but the probability is quite small. i don't have a specific number for that. but generally for earthquakes of this size, i don't believe aftershocks probabilities articulated. it would be a small number at this point. >> brian kilgore, thank you for the information and informing our viewers. people are posting about their quake express on social media, share your post today
