Another earthquake in California – now in San Francisco


Еще одно землетрясение в Калифорнии - теперь в Сан-Франциско

California continues to shake – now an earthquake measuring 4.3 points occurred in San Francis. Experts predict more strong aftershocks after the two major earthquakes in the southern part of the state.

An earthquake of magnitude 4,3 hit the area of San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon. The epicenter was 11 km away from Livermore, but it was felt throughout the Bay area area. “It was like a single jolt, as if something hit the wall of the house,” say the townspeople.

The USGS reported the earthquake along the Greenville fault, noting that there is no data on destructions or injured. Then there was aftershock by force 3,5 points, but he barely felt.

The great earthquake of 1906 in San Francisco was one of the deadliest in history. According to the USGS, the result of a push in the faults of San Andreas died from 700 to 3000 people.
