A still relatively humble but by far the largest temblor in a series of temblors to set San Ramon Valley resident’s teeth on edge rumbled through at 12:19 p.m. Friday, apparently epicentered in someone’s backyard off Richard Lane.
Locals who were hoping they had seen the end of the most recent flurry were surprised by the shaker, which struck equidistant between Danville and Diablo and apparently rattled a few teacups.
Although no damage appears to have been done, residents checking in with NEWS24/680 this morning reported a definite “side to side” motion to these latest quakes, latest and largest of a swarm of eight temblors to roll through the area in the last 24 hours.
Early morning wags chalked up the seismic activity to everything from backyard fracking operations to hard-partying neighbors, but nerves to appear to be fraying a bit as sleep has been hard to find for some.
