A flurry of earthquakes has rocked California leaving locals worried that the Big One is coming. For decades, residents of the southwestern state have been concerned a huge earthquake, known as the Big One, is on its way. Now today, there have been five relatively strong tremors which could suggest that a powerful quake is coming to devastate California. The biggest of the lot was a 3.9 magnitude tremor which struck just off the coast of San Clemente Island. The next biggest was a 2.5 tremor which rocked

Planada in central California. These were accompanied by smaller quakes which has led some locals to believe that a powerful earthquake is on its way. One local wrote on Twitter: “California, stop with the earthquakes.” Another added: “More seismic activity is heating up in Southern CA again so far.” This follows on from October 21 where more than 40 earthquakes hit California in one day. California sits on top of the potentially deadly San Andreas Fault, a chasm between two massive plates of the Earth’s crust that extends hundreds of miles across California. MORE
