The early hours quake (on August 7) was recorded as that of a 1.6 magnitude, per the U.S. Geological Survey (whose Earthquakes Hazard Team will continue to have their global positioning satellite system, to measure ground shifts and seismic events, located at the northern end of Stanfield Cutoff, given land permit approval granted by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors this week). This morning’s earthquake registered a depth of over four miles, per the GPS equipment located on the North Shore.
