TRES PINOS, Calif. (AP) - Several small earthquakes have rattled the same area of Northern California.

Seismologist Jessica Sigala of the U.S. Geological Survey says the four largest temblors struck late Monday and early Tuesday.

They ranged from magnitude-3.5 to magnitude-3.8 and were all centered near the city of Tres Pinos, about 10 miles south of Hollister and 50 miles south of San Jose.

Police in Hollister say they felt some of the quakes but have had no reports of any damage or injuries.
