Earthquake ~ Lompoc Valley ~ August 10th at 3am ~ Magnitude 3.7 – CENTRAL CALIFORNIA

This morning there was a nice little baby of an earthquake in Lompoc, California, just west of the Santa Ynez Valley and just south of Santa Maria off the historic highway 1 freeway.

Not to far from the Santa Ynez fault line just along the SY mountains running all the way from the 154 towards Buellton along the Santa Ynez River. More under the cut….
