3.0 Richters Struck Near Santa Barbara Island, California While a 2.4 Struck Malibu, AND a 2.2 Struck Near Agua Dulce, California, Too!!!

So to begin with the epicenter of the biggest of these earthquakes that struck just moments before press time has a description in the list of nearby places like 50 miles south of Oxnard, California and I'm adding about 40 Miles West of Catalina Island there, too, although not certain how far west Catalina Island is from say Dana Point or Laguna Beach where I catch the ferry boat TO Catalina Island! Might be twenty, or maybe twenty-five miles from mainland west to Catalina and so the felt reports will follow as well and possibly not contain many from San Diego County. Here's the big list of a lot of earthquakes around Los Angeles saying there could be MORE COMING!!!

Here's the USGS Report on the 2.4 Malibu Earthquake. . . . .

2.4 - 3km NNW of Malibu, CA
2017-03-22 04:32:31 UTC

Nearby Places:
1.9 Miles NNW of Malibu, CA
7.5 Miles SSW of Agoura Hills, CA
8.1 Miles West of Malibu Beach, CA
8.1 Miles South of Westlake Village, CA

Kind of unusual to also have an Agua Dulce Earthquake show up in the middle of all these other ones going on and perhaps I'll have to write more about this series in next EQ Blog. . . because it may all change due to right now as I write being about thirteen seconds apart! Possibly narrowing it down to one single epicenter although at the same time it could have been the computer that arranged it all into THREE Earthquakes in the first place you know!

2.2 - 6km SE of Agua Dulce, CA
2017-03-22 04:32:24 UTC

Nearby Places:
3.7 Miles SE of Agua Dulce, CA
5.6 Miles WSW of Acton, CA
10.6 Miles WSW of Vincent, CA
11.8 Miles S of Leona Valley, CA
12.4 Miles E of Santa Clarita, CA

Not exactly sure, but I seem to remember that Agua Dulce place being the location where they shot at least one movie that I recall right off hand, "Flintstones" with John Goodman!!!

Lots shaking in that L.A. Region!!! Watch for more!!! Occurred to me throughout day on Tuesday that Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia MIGHT still be on the list, too, so there as well as Mozambique, and Peru/Ecuador/Columbia. EQ Guy

I'm in Palm Springs & the wind is horrible tonight. But there was little doubt that there were at least 2 temblors that I felt. Got a bit spooked because I thought it could e a tornado with the way the weather was shaping up, outside!
