Seismologists said the three temblors struck Tuesday morning in a span of about two hours and were centered in the same spot about 15 miles north of Trona. There are no reports of damage or injuries.
Jessica Sigala of the National Earthquake Information Center said the largest was a magnitude-3.8 quake at 3:23 a.m. A magnitude-3.4 quake hit later at 4:27 a.m. The third was a magnitude-3.1 earlier Tuesday.
The epicenter of all three was 32 miles northeast of Ridgecrest and about 150 miles northeast of Bakersfield.
Sheriff's dispatchers in surrounding counties said no damage or injuries were reported.
Several small earthquakes -- the largest was a magnitude 4.1 -- shook the same area Sunday.
