Southern California is Shaken by a 5.1-Magnitude Earthquake While the State is Soaked by a Tropical Storm

Rain brought by Hilary

At 2:41 PM, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake occurred 80 miles (130 km) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, about 4 miles (7 km) southeast of the mountain village of Ojai.


On Sunday, Southern California was shaken by a magnitude 5.1 earthquake just hours after a tropical cyclone made landfall there and brought copious rain.

The magnitude 5.1 earthquake caused widespread damage in the area and was followed by smaller foreshocks and aftershocks.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office reported that no initial reports of significant damage or injuries had been made.

According to USGS, Near Ojai, there were at least 7 further smaller earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 2.6 to 3.9 before the magnitude 5.1 earthquake.

It is difficult for South California to deal with two unrelated environmental occurrences, the tropical storm and the magnitude 5.1 earthquake.

It is best to know the safety precautions to deal with these problems.

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake is a moderate quake and happens oftentimes.

Though it is not really that strong to leave major damage, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake can harm your safety, especially when you are in an area or a building that cannot guarantee your safety for such a natural phenomenon.

While dealing with a tropical storm, people in South California doubled their alertness as the magnitude 5.1 earthquake accompanied storm Hilary.

The magnitude 5.1 earthquake happened 2:41 pm just after Hilary came to visit the place.

There are still no further reports about the magnitude 5.1 earthquake as authorities focused more on the tropical cyclone.

This magnitude 5.1 earthquake serves as a reminder to South Californians of the value of being earthquake prepared.
