Los Angeles County, California’s homeowners are shaken after the magnitude-4.2 earthquake.
Malibu Beach and the surrounding area were rattled by a magnitude-4.2 earthquake that struck South of Malibu Beach on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
The shaking was felt in Santa Monica, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Thousand Oaks, Torrance, Los Angeles, and Long Beach.
The magnitude-4.2 Malibu earthquake comes on the 5th anniversary of another earthquake that happened at 2 a.m. A magnitude-4.0 struck near Trabuco Canyon around 2 a.m. on January 25th, 2018. Earthquakes like these serve as a reminder for those who do not have earthquake insurance to look for coverage as soon as possible. These situations happen randomly; stay prepared and protect your home/valuables before it is too late.
Reports from this earthquake
“Laying in bed and felt everything roll back and forth a couple of times, stopped and started hearing sounds of apartment settling (cricks and cracks). Felt one more jolt a minute or two after.”
“The tv shook quite a lot, and I could hear rumbling. My cat was immediately alarmed. My partner was sleeping, but from where I was on the couch, I felt it immediately and was very disturbed! Moving was difficult, but I woke him quickly to get us under a table.”
