70 Quakes Across Central California in Past Few Days


The 70 recent quakes in central California are the latest in a wider trend of increased seismic activity around the Pacific Rim. One fault line running along the Pacific coast, known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone, currently has the potential to trigger an earthquake with a magnitude between 8.0 and 9.0. Meanwhile across the ocean, Asia was recently blighted by tremors with magnitudes of 6.0, putting populations as far away as the American west coast at risk.
