Flurry of aftershocks follow Pacoima earthquake
PACOIMA – (INT) – Dozens of aftershocks have followed Thursday morning’s M4.2 earthquake, but none have been strong enough to cause damage.
Seismologists described the temblor as shallow with an epicenter about a mile north of Pacoima.
They said there was a 27 percent chance its occurred on the Mission Hills Fault not far from an intersection of faults responsible for the 1971 Sylmar and the M6.7 1994 Northridge quake.
Aftershocks are likely to continue but there is only a 5 percent chance of a quake larger than the initial jolt.
