As if scorching hot temperatures weren’t enough, a 3.8-magnitude earthquake shook the Santa Ynez Valley on Saturday evening.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the minor quake struck at 6:48 p.m. with the epicenter 3.1 miles south-southeast of Santa Ynez at a depth of 6 miles.
The quake originally was estimated at 4.0 magnitude before being revised.
The temblor was felt beyond the Santa Ynez Valley, including in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Los Alamos.
The Central Coast remains under an excessive heat warning with unusually hot temperatures expected to top 100 degrees in some areas.
