California suffered an “earthquake storm” on Friday night. At 8:03 PM Southern California suffered a small 3.6 earthquake on the Richter scale; followed at 9:14 PM with what the U.S. Geological Survey called a “moderate” 5.1 quake that lasted for four minutes; followed five minutes later with a “small” 2.3 quake.

As Charles Richter, who pioneered earthquake measuring devices, once cautioned: “When you get a lot of earthquakes, you get a lot of earthquakes.”

Geophysicist John Dvorak, author of the book Is California Overdue for a Big Earthquake?, warned that the mild March 17th earthquake that rattled across the Los Angeles-area basin at 6:30 A.M. in the morning could be the first in a series of increasingly higher intensity earthquakes that could build over an extended period in Southern California. He cautioned, “A lengthy vacation from earthquakes certainly sounds nice”, but a quake break can just be the calm before the earthquake storm.
