A shallow magnitude 4.1 earthquake was reported Saturday afternoon one mile from Rowland Heights, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 2:32 p.m. at a depth of 5.6 miles. (It was originally reported as a 4.4 magnitude.) Updated at 2:40 p.m. The quake was centered not far from the epicenter of Friday's 5.1 temblor in La Habra. There have been more than a hundred aftershocks since then, but this one was the largest.

Get ready for the big one! Unfortunately, that will also affect the rest of the country - from the spillover effects.

These are only “little” earthquakes. Not necessarily indicative of a big one.

I heard that!

I’m betting on a Good Friday Quake at about 10.4

is there a fault anywhere NEAR D.C. by the way?

I remember the World Series Quake...aka The Loma Preita...

I was nearly thrown from the seat of my car while driving!

I sense that given the activity around the ring of fire

109km ESE of Kitaibaraki, Japan another 5.2

that somethings brewing

but did the pols notice?
4.9
90km NW of Iquique, Chile
2014-03-29 17:20:29 UTC-07:0022.1 km
4.4
70km WNW of Iquique, Chile

I dont follow earthquake activity often enough to know how often the ring of fire has a series of quakes ofany size but I do know that if anywhere in the US deserves one....it would be the porn capital of the US ....ELAY

I remember Northridge of course..before that, I remember the one that happened near Big Bear, forgot which year it was..I was too young to remember the Whittier Narrows quake, and of course the one we had two weeks ago near Encino that one was a pretty good shake..at least yesterday it wasn’t so bad, I don’t mind the swaying, just the violent shaking is what scares the poo outta me

The fault that these are occurring on is not big enough to produce anything near a major quake.

There is a fault about 1 mile from my home that is capable of producing an 8.0. I think the fault in La Habra is only capable of producing something around a 6.0 (which is 100 times stronger than the one last night, but not likely to cause any kind of major damage in Southern California).

How long have you lived in California?

I don’t think it’s really out of the ordinary. Though it did have a foreshock ~3.1 or so 54 minutes before the main shock. That’s relatively rare in SoCal.

If we didn’t have tectonics though, we wouldn’t be here reading about it.

I wasJust North of San Francisco during the big one there

my car was barely holding the road..... even at 25 miles per hour.

I cant say that I’d wish that on very many people...

Since 1971, Northern CA for all but six months of that time.

The San Andreas is the one we “fear”

Ummm...I had a thought this morning and didn’t have time to look until now; check this out

http://www.whittierhillsoilwatch.org/la-habra-heights.php

http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2013/08/fracking_orange_county_linn_en.php

Just a ‘for what it’s worth’, as they’ve been fracking just a few hundred yards NNE of Esteli Park, right smack in between Rowland Heights & La Habra.

Might explain why USGS shows no fault where the swarm has been.

I wasnt aware that there were that many faults in SoCal.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/sca/sca_faults.pdf

The Bay Area in Northern California “boasts” the San Andreas fault and the hayward fault. As far as I know there arent any others that have moved since ive been here

I live about 35 miles from the San Andreas, but only about 3/4 of a mile from the Elsinore Fault, which is capable of an 8.0. Actually we had a 1.1 right underneath our house yesterday. I only know that because I looked on the earthquake map. I didn't feel a thing.

those 1.1 can slip by cant they

I remember a small but rather LOUD one a few years ago.

I was next door to a small local fire station....and hearing something that sounded as if one of the trucks was about to come crashing through the walls...went OUTSIDE to have a look. as it turned out it was a small quake.

I lived on a hill In Marin County North of San Francisco at the time to the Big one there and sat outside in the dark...and watched the place going up in flames. Im very grateful that I wasnt IN S.F. during the quake.

One Night at the Bar in San Francisco. . . .

I was at the pub the other night and overheard three very hefty women talking at the bar.

Their accent appeared to be Scottish, so I approached and asked, “Hello, are you three lassies from Scotland?”

One of them angrily screeched, “It’s Wales - Wales, you bloody idiot!”

So I apologized and replied, “I’m so sorry. Are you three whales from Scotland?”

And that’s the last thing I remember before the earthquake flattened me . . . .

Actually while you NEasterners were buried in snow this winter, I was outside in my t-shirt and shorts laying in my hammock and catching some rays just about every weekend.

Ah, the joys of local warming!
