Earthquake strikes near Orcutt

A 3.3 magnitude earthquake struck southeast of Orcutt Sunday Morning.

The USGS says it happened around 10:04 a.m.

The epicenter was just south of the Clark Avenue exit on Highway 101.

The USGS says the earthquake epicenter was shallow.

It struck just 0.1 mile underneath the surface.

Witnesses say the earthquake felt like a short roll and lasted a few seconds.

There are no reports of injuries or damage.

The timing of the minor temblor comes 15 years and nearly to the exact day and hour of the San Simeon Earthquake that struck the Central Coast on December 22, 2003 at 11:15 a.m.

The 6.6 magnitude quake caused the Acorn Building in Paso Robles to collapse killing two women.
