MONTEREY COUNTY, Calif. (FOX 11) - Is ‘The Big One’ just around the corner? Fresh fears have been raised that a huge earthquake is about to hit California after a swarm of recent tremors struck central California.
In the last week, 134-small quakes have hammered a 3-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas Fault.
17 of them were stronger than 2.5 magnitude, and six of them were stronger than a three, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks.
The swarm follows fears raised last week that a major earthquake is about to hit after a series of ten 'mini-quakes' struck the same area.
That swarm included a 4.6 shaker felt in San Francisco more than 90-miles away.
