Two small earthquakes shook the Tri-Valley this afternoon. A magnitude 4.3 quake followed by a magnitude 3.5 quake struck a bit after 1:00 pm north of Livermore and east Blackhawk. The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department has not received any notification of damage or injuries within our jurisdictions. We did activate our earthquake protocol which included preparing our apparatus for additional quakes and assessing our infrastructure.
These quakes serve as a great reminder to residents and businesses to be prepared for a larger scale earthquake or disaster. Additional information can be found on our website:
At the very least, this is a great time to check your emergency kit to make sure food, water and other supplies are ready!
