Earthquake Today by Los Angeles: 3.8 Quake Wednesday in Riverside; Corona and Tustin, California

Another earthquake, with a preliminary magnitude of 3.8 apparently struck near Los Angeles in Riverside County by the city of Corona, located in Southern California, on Wednesday night–nearly a day after a 4.4-magnitude quake hit near Fontana, Calif.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit near Tustin, Corona, Villa Park, and Yorba Linda. It had a depth of 5.3 miles.

The quake, which struck at 11:40 p.m. PT, apparently rattled much of the greater LA area.

On Twitter, a number of people wrote that they could feel it.

“So apparently there was another earthquake?!” wrote one. 

Added another: “That’s the second night in a row that there’s been an earthquake. Bet you anything the ‘Big One’ is coming.” 

Said another, “Another earthquake #cool.” 

“Oh there was an earth quake ? lol would have never known if y’all wasn’t blowing up my timeline bout it,” tweeted another user.

Another wrote, “I feel like were are going to have a bigger #earthquake and these are just preshocks but let’s hope I’m wrong :(“

There were no initial reports of injuries or damage.

    I’m reading these every day…aware that earthquakes are normal, happen deep underground all the time, these are just small ones, etc.. But…it’s making me uneasy, as the person in the article said, is this leading up to something? It seems different than usual, and I’ve been wondering the same thing.

      Small tremors take the stress off faultlines…better that the pressure is not building due to a lack of movement

        OK, you have relieved my mind. I noticed on the other quake story where people were talking hurricanes, etc. I’m in an area where we really get NOTHING. The edge of a hurricane maybe, a touch down of a small tornado that doesn’t “travel” anywhere because of the mountain terrain, just takes out one small shed or something, no earthquakes, no wild fires, the odd short term flooding. The most we get is the occasional blizzard, and that’s really not destructive in a way some other things are. I’m in PA, in the Pocono Mts. We’re very ill equipped to imagine earthquakes of any kind. LOL
