Los Angeles California Magnitude 3.3 Earthquake: Did You Feel It?
There seems to be a lot of earthquake activity recently and only in the last week we’ve told of quakes in Guatemala and also in India and Nepal. Back on September 15 we also told of a small magnitude 3.5 earthquake that struck in Southern California and now today there are reports of another small earthquake in Southern California with a magnitude of 3.3 impacting central Los Angeles County.
The earthquake struck just before 11:30 am on Sunday, 8 miles northeast of Santa Clarita. The tremor’s center was approximately “9 miles northeast of Saugus, 10 miles north northeast of Newhall and 33 miles north northwest of the Los Angeles Civic Center,” according to ABC. So far there are no reports of damage or injuries though there are reports that Facebook users said they felt the temblor in Leona Valley, Canyon County, Acton and Pasadena.
Over on The Sacramento Bee a report tells how the USGS reported the exact time of today’s quake at 11.23: am and that many people using the USGS website have said they felt the quake, reporting light shaking. The quake was at a depth of 0.5 km and the event number on the USGS site is CI11012333 with 495 responses.
While this was a small earthquake if you’re worried about what to do in the event of a natural disaster then an article over on Patch.com has some great advice including what items you should have in a 7-day supply kit, such as non-perishable food, water, first-aid kit, medications, infant formula and much more, so check that out for full details.
