Four small earthquakes made waves on the Richter scale in and around Santa Cruz County this week, with the largest measured at 2.6.
Generally, earthquakes that fail to break the 2-mark on the scale are difficult to feel far from the epicenter. As of Saturday evening, three reported feeling the 2.6 on the U.S. Geological Survey website.
