Northern California has been hit with a second earthquake

On Wednesday, northern California experienced a earthquake of 5.4 magnitude near Rio Del region – an area struggling to recover from the trauma caused by a devastating earthquake that happened only 10 days ago.

According to the US Geological Survey, Sunday’s earthquake occurred at an impressive depth of 27.8 kilometers.

On December 20, a 6.4-magnitude quake struck the same region in Humboldt County, causing widespread havoc and destruction.

The devastating earthquake left homes and roads in ruins, disrupted services, and severed water and power supplies for thousands of people.

This region experiences seismic activity with a certain regularity, yet this event was more destructive than most. This earthquake measured 6.4 degrees on the Richter Scale and left extensive damage in its wake.
