The temblor struck at 1:04 a.m. at a depth of .6 miles with a magnitude of 5.2, according to a computer-generated report from the USGS. A quake of such strength is capable of generating considerable damage.

Within an hour and 20 minutes, there were seven aftershocks in the same general area. The strongest were magnitude-3.5 shakers at 1:06 a.m. and at 1:33 a.m. with roughly the same epicenter as the main quake but at depths of 6.7 miles and 6.2 miles, respectively, according to the USGS.
