Earthquake at Temecula

As reported in the Sacrament Daily Union – November 22, 1871

(taken from the San Diego Union, November 14, 1871)

A gentleman just from the country informs us that quite a smart shock of earthquake was felt at Temecula, about sixty miles distant from San Diego, on the night of October 27th.  The people at Bergman’s and Charles Thomas’ ranches were thoroughly roused by the phenomenon, which was immediately preceded by a loud sound, as of an explosion.  The shock occurred about ten o’clock, and was three or four seconds duration.  The movement was from southwest to northwest. – San Diego Union, November 14th
