Mild morning earthquake stirs Santa Barbara

A mild morning earthquake stirred Santa Barbara and Goleta at 6:16 a.m.

The U.S. Geological Survey said it had a magnitude 3.1 and was southwest of Santa Barbara by about four miles. That would place it offshore.

No reports of damage or injuries have been made.

NewsChannel 3 viewers said they felt it on the Westside, Hidden Valley, parts of lower San Marcos Pass, and in the Goleta Valley.

It was described by some residents as a slow shake with two small jolts. The area has many earthquake faults, especially in the offshore region but none have been active lately.

(If there are any other updates they will be posted here and our social media sites.)
