4.0 Earthquake Rattles Ojai and Ventura County
A 4.0 magnitude earthquake rattled residents of Ojai and Ventura on Friday. The quake was felt in nearby regions as well, with reports coming out of Newbury Park, Camarillo, and Oxnard.
The temblor occurred in the exact same area as August’s massive 5.1 magnitude “Hurriquake,” which struck the region at the same time a rare tropical storm made landfall in Southern California.
“This location is interesting to have it there,” Lucy Jones, Los Angeles’s resident seismologist, said at the time. “This is the first time we’ve had a 5 since 1932 in exactly this location, and even within the Ventura basin.”
Whenever earthquakes or severe weather strike California, these events should serve as a good reminder that preparedness is key when it comes 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.
