California Earthquake: 17 Million People Felt Earthquake

California Earthquake Felt by 17 Million People

An earthquake in California that registered 5.1 on the Richter scale was felt by millions of people in the surrounding regions. Several aftershocks were experienced as well.

Over 17 million people were scared witless by a 5.1 earthquake in the La Habra region of California. The seismic effects were felt and reported to the experts who carried out the Geological Survey. 

About one in 1000 individuals were the psychological victims of this onslaught of tectonic activity. And although no injuries occurred, a lot of property got damaged and destroyed. 

The wide area of southern California that came under the earthquake’s epicenter had some broken mains and minimal damage to residential areas. The day when the earthquake struck out of nowhere was Friday. There was a rock slide in Carbon Canyon too. 

The net total damage that got inflicted on the physical features, manmade and natural, has not been tallied. The “Did You Feel It?” survey on the website of the US Geological Survey showed the overall response of the citizens to the natural calamity. 

DYFI co-creator and operator said, “About one in 1,000 are actually reporting... That’s a pretty good [data] sample. If you’re polling for political responses, that would be a huge sample.”

Over 144,000 people told the media about the fear-filled experience. And some 100 million must have felt the effects more or less too. The “Did You Feel It?” survey used to be carried out by postal service once upon a time. But now it is on a website that people fill its questionnaires. 

Cyberspace seems to have changed everything most probably for the better. Meanwhile, Facebook and Twitter were flooded with comments and opinions about the earthquake. The fault lines around California are especially vulnerable. 

 

The big earthquake that lies in the future is something to be really wary of. And the fact that it could strike anytime is even more of an alarming premonition of disasters and catastrophes that exist in the unpredictable times which are yet to come. It’s been several years since such a large earthquake sent tremors throughout the region.
