2.4 Earthquake Rattles South Los Angeles
Thursday morning, a 2.4 earthquake rattled residents of South Los Angeles at 6:58 AM. The quake occurred near Stocker Street in the Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw area. The temblor was registered at 4.5 miles below the surface.
This isn’t the first earthquake to strike the area recently –in fact, there have been two earthquakes ranging in a 3.0 magnitude or greater in the past 10 days.
Quakes of this size are quite common in Los Angeles though. On average, there are 59 earthquakes between a 2.0 and 3.0 magnitude in L.A. each year.
It’s important to keep in mind that every time there is an earthquake in Los Angeles, it does increase the chances of a larger temblor to follow.
Being that California is earthquake country, it’s essential to take all earthquake precautions if you live in our Golden State.
In addition to having an earthquake preparedness kit in your home with enough food, water, and medication to last every person and every pet in your household for at least 3 days, it’s important to have your home foundation inspected for earthquake retrofits and/or foundation repair.
Most older homes in Los Angeles are lacking the modern structural reinforcements to withstand the shaking from a large earthquake.
