MORGAN HILL A small earthquake struck Morgan Hill numerous miles from the Anderson Dam early Thu morning, according to the America Geological Survey.

The USGS reported the magnitude 2.9 quake struck at 6:27 in the morning about 6 miles north of the dam, at a depth of 3.97 miles.

Owned by the Santa Clara Valley Water District, Anderson Dam is being watched carefully because it requires a seismic upgrade.

The lake is supposed to be limited to 68 percent of capacity until that work is done, but this winter’s rains have the lake completely full.

Last week, not controlled releases from Anderson Dam led to flooding in San Jose.

There are no reports of damage or injuries.
