Quake information: Reported (unconfirmed) earthquake: 0.5 mi southwest of San Francisco, California, USA, 27 April 2021 07:56 GMT

It is assumed that this record was not from an actual earthquake. This may be due to some other (unknown) event that causes tremors, e.g. B. Explosions, sonic booms, weather or other human or natural causes. Even officially reported earthquakes are sometimes removed again later when seismic signals that were initially processed automatically are later manually reinterpreted so that they do not originate from real earthquakes.

This can happen when initial automatic calculations return an earthquake, but turn out to be incorrect in subsequent (manual) revision.

The first report is below:

Our surveillance service AllQuakes received reports of an earthquake in or near San Francisco, California, USA at around 7:56 GMT. Unless at least one national or international seismological agency confirms this, their status remains unconfirmed.
