los angeles earthquake 3.7

A massive earthquake measuring 3.7 magnitude occurred in Los Angeles.
The earthquake was recorded at 12:03 a.m. and its intensity is 3.7.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake occurred in Newport-Englewood, about 7.8 miles from the neighborhood of View Park-Windsor Hills, where several earthquakes occurred in 2015.
The earthquake was felt in many parts of Los Angeles, and people are sharing their experiences on social media.
So far, there have been no immediate reports of injuries or damage caused by earthquakes.
Near the Newport-Englewood Disability Area, many people were considered to be a dangerous area for earthquakes because they live on it.
Experts believe that more than seven earthquakes along the Newport-Englewood flaw could cause serious damage to parts of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is a region where a powerful earthquake occurred in the past.
On February 9, 1971, a massive earthquake of magnitude 6.6 occurred in the mountains 40 km north of the center of the city at 6 am.
The earthquake was about 10 km deep, with magnitude 7 near the earthquake, and magnitude 6 in the northern San Fernando district.
In the past, earthquakes have damaged hospitals, dams, highways, schools, substations, and homes, resulting in 62 deaths and 1,000 injuries.
The earthquake was about to collapse the dam of the reservoir, and about 80,000 residents were evacuated urgently.
 
Earthquakes in Los Angeles are not uncommon.
The Los Angeles Times reported that about five earthquakes occur each year in the Los Angeles area, between 3 and 4 magnitudes.
 
The fear of earthquakes is the best fear we think.
In Japan, where the 2011 earthquake and tsunami destroyed nuclear power plants, another government report warns of a massive earthquake and tsunami.
According to the report, a tsunami of more than 30 meters can come at a magnitude of 9.0.
Seismic expert Professor Kenji Satake of Tokyo University said that the only way to prepare for earthquakes and tsunamis is ‘evacuation’.
