California experienced a few moderate earthquakes over the last twenty-four hours. The quakes were some of the most powerful the region has seen in a few weeks. While one of the quakes was in Oregon, it made the list since it struck just north of the California border where two other earthquakes hit.
The earthquakes mentioned here today have been documented by USGS, CalTech, EarthquakeTrack, Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, and other contributors within California’s extensive seismic research programs – all credible and globally recognized seismic activity monitoring systems. UTC is an abbreviation for Coordinated Universal Time. Anyone with the MyShake App was alerted for the following quakes. There is no need to panic since seismic activity along the San Andreas Fault Line is normal.
