Shamrock Shake: 4.4 Quake Strikes Westwood

ittery jittery...

4.4 earthquake near L.A. could be 'foreshock' for bigger shake

The magnitude 4.4 earthquake that struck near Westwood is the most significant shake in Southern California since a 5.5 earthquake hit Chino Hills in 2008, a U.S. Geological Survey seismologist told reporters at a news conference Monday morning. Robert Graves said there have been at least six aftershocks since the 6:25 a.m. earthquake. The largest so far has been a magnitude 2.7 earthquake that struck five miles northwest of Westwood.

Graves said there is always the small possibility that the 4.4 earthquake was only a prelude to an equal or stronger shake. “Always the possibility that it’s a foreshock,” Graves said, adding that about 5% of earthquakes are followed by an equal or larger shake and that if it does happen, it would occur within the next several hours. But Graves did say that “certainly we would expect more aftershocks.”

Seismologists at the USGS have not yet determined exactly what fault this earthquake was on and Graves also said “we’re continuing to analyze the data, but at this point, this seems to be what I would call a rather typical earthquake.”

I was watching KTLA News this morning when it struck. That was scary.

The KTLA news anchors were the only ones getting under the desk.
