The U.S. Geological Survey website had hundreds of reports of people feeling a magnitude-4.1 quake that struck first at 5:58 a.m. Friday and was centered 7.5 miles south of the town of Tres Pinos, about 55 miles south of San Jose.

It says a magnitude-3.2 temblor hit three minutes later in the same area. A third quake with a magnitude of 3.0 was reported soon after.

The survey says a fourth earthquake was reported at 6:22 a.m. 8 miles south of Tres Pinos.

People from the Pacific coast in Monterey County to the north in San Jose reported feeling them.
