Earthquakes In California

Earthquakes In California

There have been earthquake alerts for more than 10 seperate earthquakes, at depths of no more than 10 Km’s deep for Southern California.

The strongest one at the time of writing this article was 5.9 on the Richter Scale, at a depth of just 6 Km.

Lets all pray that this is not a precursor to the big one that is well overdue on the San Andreas fault.

The San Andreas fault is a very active earthquake region and it is very common to have activity in that region, but to have over 10 earthquakes in such a short amount of time is a very worrying sign.

The San Andreas fault is a crack in the Earth’s crust in California, some 1100 kilometers long. There have been many massive earthquakes along that fault in the past, Notably in 1857, 1906 and 1989.

I will be sure to keep you updated on any significant updates on the recent activity in Southern California.

Here is a map of the San Andreas Fault.
