There have been more than 700 earthquakes with a swarm of earthquakes recorded in the Fontana area at Los Angeles since May 25, ranging from magnitude 0.7 to magnitude 3.2. Three of the quakes have been of magnitude 3 or greater.
The swarm of earthquakes has shown remarkable staying power in the area around the Southern California city.
The likelihood of a larger seismic event, given how many quakes that have occurred over such an extended period, is higher than normal, scientists are saying.
They also say this is probably the most prolific swarm in that area of the Fontana seismic zone that has been seen in the past three decades.
The swarm initially moved northward, but something unusual began when the swarm turned around and went south, back toward the middle of the activity and the 60 Freeway.
Scientists said this is somewhat of an unexpected evolution, and further analysis of the earthquakes shows that activity as of late was fading pretty slowly — slower than would be expected for a typical sequence of aftershocks following a main shock.
This suggesting it’s going to continue for at least several weeks with seismologists watching what’s happening and trying to track the activity.
They warned that, given all the seismic activity, residents should be ready and make sure to store plenty of water, and make sure there’s nothing that can fall on them.
Residents in the Fontana area said there is talk about how industrial wastewater ponds built in the last several years off of Jurupa and Beech avenues drained out recently, right around the time the quakes began.
Seismic swarms can be worrisome — especially when they occur near faults that experts know are capable of unleashing huge, catastrophic earthquakes.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that earthquakes will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the coming end of the age and the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ.
