  • Description

    Another earth tremor -- an after-shock from the earthquake in February in which more than 60 people died -- hit the San Fernando Valley near los Angeles on Wednesday (31 March). Seismologists say the tremor measured between 4 and 4.5 on the Richter Scale of earthquake intensity. Last month's earthquake measured 6.6 on the scale, but some residents say that the Wednesday shock was worse. This may have been due to the fact that this tremor was nearer to the surface of the earth than other shocks have been no injuries reported. Some foundations cracked and nearly 200 homes received new damage, but there were no major collapses as in the February earthquakes.
