Though you may have thought it more strong winds, we did have an earthquake in our area yesterday evening. At 6:29pm Monday, and centered seven miles west northwest of Big Bear Lake, six miles northeast of Running Springs, there was an earthquake of a 1.9 magnitude. It was just last week that we had three earthquakes, all of which were centered in this same vicinity, just between Big Bear Lake and Running Springs. For specifics on earthquake preparedness, you can review some safety tips from the Big Bear City Fire Department—in the meantime, it is suggested that you have plenty of food and water, should a massive earthquake hit our area, and be sure that your family has a disaster preparedness plan.
Update: On Wednesday, April 14, we had yet another quake in this area–a 2.5 magnitude tremor–at 4:18pm, centered eight miles west of Big Bear Lake, four miles east northeast of Running Springs.
