Skip to comments.Two Earthquakes Rattle SoCal

Shaking was reported from inland areas to the coast early Thursday when two earthquakes -- the first with a preliminary magnitude of 3.7 followed by another measured at magnitude-3.8 -- struck two miles north of Pomona.
The magnitude-3.7 quake hit about 4:43 a.m. one mile southwest of La Verne. Just 20 minutes later, a magnitude-3.8 quake struck the same area.

3.8...did anyone even feel it?
Needs to get over 5 before I pay any attention.
THE BIG’UN....... It’s coming soon
better flee to Arizona or Texas
The NBC 4 story said they were widely felt. They were somewhat shallow so maybe that’s why. Concern in some quarters could be foreshocks.
I’ve devoted my life to stamping out earthquakes. Prevention is now possible. Send $19.95 for a kit to get you started.
.. cuz geology won’t wait !
You should contact the IPCC, I understand they may be looking for a place to move some of their budget funds due to some recent revelations.
The quakes seem to be centered at Bonelli Park (near the intersection of the 10 / 57 / 71), one mile south-west of the LA County Fair.
First one didn’t wake me, but woke my daughter, second one did. Kind of interesting looking at the waveforms for these earthquakes, very short duration close to the epicenter with a lot longer just a couple miles away (3 seconds vs 7 seconds.)
The thing that gets me is how close to the surface the epicenters are.
This has been an ongoing swarm of quakes, most of them micro events (1.7 - 2.2), about 17 in the past 7 days. Almost all of them are under a half mile in depth, most within a quarter mile. Kellogg Hill, near Cal Poly, has had very similar swarms as well, but if I recall correctly, they were deeper.
That’s not even a dish rattler.
Only about 7 miles away in Chino and didn’t feel either.
If its not over 5, it’s boring
CA has about 2,000 quakes a year. 3.7 is nothing
It is so annoying that the USGS replaced its good earthquake maps with utter crapola maps.
“Oh look, you can zoom in and see one or two epicenters but nothing of value! Much better than seeing a state map covered with hundreds of values that can be easily seen.”
The dumbass who did that should be fired, unless his intent was to prevent the public from seeing earthquakes. Though it would have been more to the point to just use a URL redirect to Disney.com.
I wonder if people who don’t live in earthquake country even know how small these are.
Only the tourists.
