A 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck San Bernardino on Wednesday evening, as reported by the United States Geological Survey. The earthquake occurred at 7:43 p.m. and was located about 1.864 miles southwest of San Bernardino. Fortunately, there were no immediate reports of injuries or structural damage.

Dr. Allen Husker from CalTech’s Seismological Laboratory noted that the earthquake happened close to the surface and in a populated region, meaning that it would likely be felt by many residents in San Bernardino County. Reports of residents feeling the earthquake came from areas outside the epicenter such as Burbank, Santa Fe Springs, Chino, and Fontana.

One resident, Timothy Key, described the experience of the earthquake as sudden and chaotic. He was in the middle of recording a video when the shaking began. Key said, “Out of nowhere, I just felt this shaking and I’m like, ‘Oh, whoa, what’s going on?’ It was just chaos.” The jolt was intense, making Key feel as though the entire house was about to collapse on him. Despite the initial fear, Key and his family quickly recognized it as an earthquake and managed to remain calm.

The unexpected earthquake serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of natural disasters and the importance of being prepared for such events. While this earthquake did not cause significant damage, it is a timely reminder for residents to ensure that they have necessary supplies and plans in place should a more severe earthquake occur in the future.
