2.6 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Silver Lake
On Monday, a 2.6 earthquake rattled residents of the Silver Lake area. The quake struck at 9:00 AM at a depth of 7 miles.
No damage or injuries were reported.
It’s important to remember that Southern California is earthquake country, and any time there is an earthquake there is the potential it can trigger a larger seismic event.
Los Angeles’s resident seismologist Lucy Jones reminded Californians last month about these odds when two back-to-back earthquakes rattled Cupertino, CA: “Every quake has 5% chance of triggering something bigger and those 5% look just like the other 95%,” she tweeted.
Whenever earthquakes or severe weather strike California it’s a good reminder that preparedness is key to combating natural disasters.
And if you own a home, there are many important proactive measures you can take to protect your loved ones and your property from natural disasters.
Retrofitting homes, apartment structures, and commercial buildings are the way to keeping California resilient in the face of earthquakes – and cost far less than repairing damage from a large seismic event.
