Earthquake Felt in Menifee

We had another earthquake about an hour ago.

It was centered 9.1 miles north-west of Lake Elsinore, probably near the town of Silverado Canyon, in Orange County.

It registered 3.9 on the Richter scale.

This is the same location that another earthquake struck earlier this month, except that one was larger than today's, at 4.1.

Interestingly, today's earthquake felt like it was stronger.

  1. According to the google map file from USGS the tremor was centered in the hills just southwest of the Temescal Canyon overpass off I-15. This is within about a mile of the tremor we felt a couple weeks ago.
