At 9:55 A.m today, there was a widespread earthquake felt in Southern California late Monday morning with no immediate reports of damages or loss of life. The quake which took place about 25 miles north of Anza, was not likely to cause any serious damage due to the low seismicity of the earthquake.
” Susie Bride, a cashier at Cahuilla Mountain Market and Cafe in Anza, said the quake seemed to last awhile but didn’t do any damage to the business. “It kind of shook and then I thought, `God, is that an earthquake?’ It kind of shook and then it rolled a little bit and then it shook again,” she said.”
“The ground was definitely shaking and a couple things fell over on my bookshelves,” Hamilton Elementary School principal Carol Robilotta said. “Some of them, it’s the first one…it gave us a chance for us to discuss it.” www.cbsnews.com
After the earthquake took place in southern California there was more than 100 aftershocks that radiated northeast, of the San Jacinto fault, according U.S Geological Survey. One of the bigger aftershocks measured 3.2 in magnitude, and struck less than a minute after the first earthquake event.
Here is a list of magnitude 5.0 or greater earthquakes according to the U.S Geological Survey:

The Tugurahua volcano in Ecuador shown above, is experiencing moderate levels of sustained activity. Deep but low-frequency earthquakes have taken place beneath the Mammoth Mountain volcano. Recent OMI satellite imagery shows a pronounced SO2 anomaly over at the Tungurahua volcano as well as a significant plume drifting from the Popocatpetl volcano.
In the last 7 days alone, an asteroid about the size of a city block and three smaller rocks from space have zipped safely by earth, the latest demonstration that we live in a very volatile solar system, that can bring to us all surprises that could potentially turn out deadly. The most recent asteroid flybys took place on March 4th and Sunday, March 10th. All of these asteroids were discovered this month.
“The scary part about this one, of course, is that it’s something we didn’t even know about,” said Patrick Paolucci, president of the online Slooh Space Camera during a live webcast of 2013 ET’s flyby. The asteroid was first discovered on March 3 by the Catalina Sky Survey at the University of Arizona
