Monday morning's earthquake in Los Angeles was the latest in a series of recent quakes we've had either on land or just off the coast of California over past week.

So what kind of earthquake threats do we face here in Sacramento?

Dan Wilson is a geo-technical engineer with UC Davis. He studies earthquakes. He says Sacramento has a small, but significant earthquake history.

"In 1989, when the Loma Prieta Earthquake hit, we did have shaking in Sacramento -- we felt it. So things do move around, it's just we don't have the level of shaking that they do in the Bay Area," Wilson said. 

But it's been more than a century since a serious temblor hit Sacramento.

In Winters, there was a 6.4 earthquake in the 1890s. 

Wilson calls Monday's 4.4 earthquake in LA "normal."
