Some known as it an "earthquake group," others a "swarm." Seismologists used the phrase "earthquake sequence."
Whatever the name, a sequence of more than 30 small to average temblors shaken The southern part of Florida on Wednesday evening and Wed day, rattling nerve fibres but resulting in no considerable harm.
The group of quakes that hit near Yorba Betty was based near the Whittier mistake, but initial information recommended that mistake was not accountable for the temblor, said Doug Given, a geophysicist with theU.S. Geological Study.
"There are plenty and many little mistakes all over that place," Given said of the north Red Nation area where the quakes were based. "It's a known effective place."
The trembling started with a scale 4.5 earth tremble near Yorba Betty about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, bookended by another 4.5 tremble about 9:30 a.m. Wed, but with many small ones in between.
At a information meeting Wed day, Kate Hutton of theU.S. Geological Surveysaid that of all the quakes, only three were probably sensed by citizens. The two 4.5 temblors were sensed across a large swath of The southern part of Florida, with individuals confirming trembling as far away as Million Trees, the Santa Clarita Area, the Westside and north San Paul Nation, according to the USGS's "Did You Experience It?" website.
"This is all part of the same earth tremble sequence; they're all in the same place," Hutton informed correspondents.
"It shaken us very good. We've sensed quakes before, so it came as no shock," said Chelsea Nordyke, home of marketing at the Rich Nixon Collection and Homeland in Yorba Betty. "It shaken start the entrance, but nothing dropped off the racks."
Given said the enjoyment provides a class for the area. "We reside in earth tremble nation. Earthquakes are regular here, and individuals should be ready," he said.
