Southern California Hit With Two Earthquakes in Two Days
It was a rocky weekend for many residents of Southern California. Two earthquakes rattled parts of So.Cal, occurring just two days apart from one another.
The first, a 3.6 magnitude quake, occurred on Saturday and struck just after 10:00 AM in the northwest area of Riverside County.
The temblor had a recorded depth of just over 7 miles, and the shaking was felt by residents in Chino Hills, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and even Valencia.
Seismologist Lucy Jones tweeted about the quake, revealing that this was a “standard” earthquake for Southern California.
“Today’s Mira Loma quake is a very standard SoCal quake. It’s in the Fontana trend – a lineation of quakes running SW from San Bernardino. We think it is a left-lateral fault covered by sediments,” she tweeted.
But Southern California residents were rattled again Sunday morning when a 3.0 shaker struck the Manhattan Beach area around 6:11 AM.
“Airport operations staff are checking all our facilities following a reported #earthquake this morning near Manhattan Beach, but airport operations remain normal and flights are not impacted per the FAA,” LAX tweeted.
Luckily no damage was reported from either earthquake.
On average, there are 234 earthquakes every year between a 3.0 and 4.0 magnitude in California and Nevada — which is why as a homeowner in California, it’s essential to be proactive about earthquake preparation and safety.
