Residents tweeted that Danville was “shaking like crazy” after the series of tremors.

The US Geological Survery continued to record smaller tremors.

Seismologist Anne Marie Baltay said small tremors do not indicate that a larger quake was coming after more thant 55 small quakes were recorded in February.

”This swarm is very typical of what we see in this region.

“It’s happened seven times in this area since 1970.”
