Are you talking about this event: Web Link

There is a nice big quarry on Stevens Canyon Road. Their mining sets off the USGS seismometers quite regularly. When you see an earthquake with a very shallow depth in this area, it is almost always the quarry.

You can probably get a confirm by calling them and asking about explosives use this morning.
