6.9 Earthquake Off West Coast California

March 9th, 2014-
It has been a number of years since the last major earthquake to strike the west coast of California. Now is the time to stay vigilant and be prepared for a possible earthquake to occur along the west coast.

There were some ocean buoys registering water movement of a couple inches after the earthquake, yet no damaging tsunami warning was in effect.
