Earthquake swarm continues on South Coast
Largest in series still the 3.9 magnitude quake Thursday afternoon.
There have now been around a dozen earthquakes in a swarm which started in Ventura County Thursday afternoon, and continued into Friday.
The largest was a magnitude 3.9 quake, which hit at 4:25 Thursday afternoon. It was centered around six miles northwest of Santa Paula. Seismologists have adjusted the exact magnitude multiple times since the quake, as they’ve examined the data. It was felt from Santa Barbara County to Orange County.
Most of the other quakes have been too small for people to feel. The second largest was at 4:35 Thursday afternoon, and was a magnitude 2.6.
They have all been centered in the same general area between Santa Paula and Ojai.
There’s no reported injuries or damage.
