3.3-magnitude earthquake rattles Santa Monica Bay

November 6, 2012LOS ANGELES A 3.3-magnitude earthquake struck the Santa Monica Bay shortly before 6:40 p.m. Monday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. No damage has been reported. Dispatchers at the Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach police departments said they felt the quake, but had no calls reporting damage. “I felt it slightly,” the Manhattan Beach dispatcher, who declined to give her name, said. “But we’ve had no calls.” The Hermosa Beach dispatcher said she felt it, but there also were no calls there, which she said was surprising. “Usually there are some calls,” she said. A deputy at the sheriff’s Marina Del Rey Station said he didn’t feel the quake and no one called. As of 7 p.m., nearly 200 people—some from as far north as Agoura Hills—reported feeling the earthquake on the USGS Community Internet Intensity Map. The temblor’s epicenter was about 9 miles southwest of Marina del Rey; 10 miles west-northwest of Hermosa Beach; and 10 miles south-southwest of Santa Monica. It struck about 7 miles under the ocean floor. According to fault maps on the USGS websites, the earthquake appears to have occurred near the Palos Verdes fault, which runs from just south of Dana Point and up through the Palos Verdes Peninsula before ending in the northern portion of the Santa Monica Bay. –The Patch

    Hi Alvin, very very unusual earthquakes in my area, Montreal, Canada. Within one month we had 2 earthquakes of 4.5 and 4.2. Usually we have small tremors every five years… I don’t need a big one to understand what is going on, this is a very strong sign of more to come. Sometimes I wish I didn’t know that much about earth changes. I just wonder if a big one is coming in my area and when ???


    • Both eastern and western Canada harbor very dangerous faults and I think both regions will be reeling from the coming change. Seismicity seems to be increasing all over Canada in general. Let’s see what develops and watch it closely.

      Good to hear from you as always,

    Is it breaking off?

    This is the same area that had small quake in 1994 days prior to the Northridge quake.
