Tremors continue in California; This is what you need to know to protect yourself

On the morning of Tuesday, March 28, at least three earthquakes shook northern California, near San Francisco, waking people up and trying to find out what was going on.

The United States Geological Survey reported that the first quake was a magnitude 3.5 at 6:01 am, while the next two were magnitude 2.6 at 6:03 and 6:04 am

All three movements are located on the Pacific Ocean about 14 miles southwest of San Francisco.

Tremors shake California

San Franciscans woke up early Tuesday morning to a series of three consecutive tremors near the area.

However, citizens of Concordia and Santa Cruz reported to the Geological Survey that they felt the movement.

Volcano Discovery, a company dedicated to the warning of earthquakes and volcanoes in the world, has indicated that in the last 24 hours there have been more than 100 earthquakes in California.

Although it may sound like a strange number, 12 of the tremors were magnitude two or greater, while 94 were smaller than magnitude two.

As much damage has been reported from this series of tremors in California, however, residents have asked authorities to be aware of the situation.

“After the expected aftershocks of the earthquake, prepare to drop, cover and hold if you feel the aftershock,” said the Department of Homeland Security.
