, 19 January 2018 11:48
The US Geological Survey is reporting that a strong Magnitude 6.3 earthquake has struck on the San Andreas fault, in the Gulf of California in Mexico. The quake took place at a very shallow depth of only 10km and was widely felt.
Persons in southern California are now strongly cautioned that this earthquake has jarred the main fault-line which travels through California, likely disturbing seismic balances in the entire region, making a major earthquake in southern California quite likely within the next 24 hours.
