3.7 Earthquake Rattles Redondo Beach
Redondo Beach residents were rattled by a 3.7 magnitude earthquake Saturday evening at 6:55 PM.
The earthquake occurred three miles from Manhattan Beach, three miles from El Segundo, and two miles from Redondo Beach.
The earthquake was registered at a depth of 7.9 miles. Luckily, there were no reports of damage from the temblor.
Earlier in April, a 4.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the Inglewood area. The epicenter of the earthquake was located south of West Century Boulevard close to the Hollywood Park Casino.
The earthquake was felt throughout Southern California, with residents in Lancaster, Laguna Niguel, and Ventura reporting shaking.
Saturday’s Redondo Beach shaker is a good reminder that the dreaded “Big One” can strike at any time.
If you own a home in or around Los Angeles, it’s important to have the property inspected for earthquake retrofits.
Most older homes built in Los Angeles, especially those before 1985, are lacking the modern structural reinforcements to withstand the shaking from a large earthquake.
Luckily, earthquake retrofitting is a cost-effective solution that can reinforce a home’s existing foundation by adding extra hardware to make it more resistant to sliding off its foundation during an earthquake.
