California Earthquake FAQ

How many quakes occur in California every day?

California has about 10-15 quakes every day. Most of them are too small to be felt by humans, although there is usually one or two that are.
Typically there are 1-2 quakes of magnitudes greater than 3 every day. Quakes of magnitude 4+ occur about once every 5 days on average.
Magnitude 5+ events are about once every 2 months, and strong quakes from magnitude 6+ occur on average once every 4-5 months.

Why does California have so many quakes?

California is located near the boundary between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates. In the area of California, it is called a transform boundary, because the movement of the two plates is mostly a side-wise sliding alongside each other. The Pacific Plate is moving northwest relative to the North American plate, at a rate of approx. 33-37 millimeters (1.3-1.5 in) per year on average.
This creates a complex system of very active fault systems, the most prominent being the San Andreas Fault, which runs for roughly 750 mi (1,200 km) through California. However, there are also many other faults including some found directly underneath the State's major cities including L.A. and San Francisco.

When was the latest earthquake in California?

The last earthquake in California occurred 1 hour and 35 minutes ago: Minor mag. 1.2 earthquake - 2km S of Alhambra, CA, on Saturday, Sep 24, 2022 at 9:27 pm (GMT -7).
