Yournewswire

A major earthquake warning has been issued to southern California after a succession of over 300 earthquakes above magnitude 4.0 were reported along the San Andrea’s fault line. 

An Earthquake Advisory warning says a major quake is likely to occur anytime between now and Tuesday 4 October.

Residents and officials in Ventura, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, Kern and Imperial counties have been told to take all necessary precautions for a major earthquake to strike.

CBS reports:

More than 140 seismic events have been recorded near Bombay Beach beginning Monday ranging from magnitude 1.4 to 4.3, according to U.S. Geological Services (USGS) seismologists.

“California is earthquake country. We must always be prepared and not let our guard down,” said OES Director Mark Ghilarducci. “The threat of an earthquake on the San Andreas Fault hasn’t gone away, so this is another important opportunity for us to revisit our emergency plans and learn what steps you need to take if a significant earthquake hits.”

The swarm occurred in a region known as the Brawley seismic zone, which is located near a fault network that connects the southernmost end of the San Andreas fault with the Imperial fault.
