Tremor was recorded about 20 kilometers deep; nobody was hurt
One tremor of 4.0 points on the Richter Scale was felt by residents of The Angels, in the United States, around 4:40 am (8:40 am Brasília time) this Monday, 5. Despite the scare, no accidents or deaths have been reported in the region so far. “The chances are that nothing bigger than that will happen, but every earthquake that can be felt is a reminder that California is a place of earthquakes,” said the United States Geological Survey in a publication on social media. The epicenter of the quake occurred at a depth of 20 kilometers, which was considered by the seismology agency to be unusual and made the event feel more lightly in the region. Still in 2019, the state of California recorded a 7.1-point earthquake on the Richter Scale, considered the largest in two decades in the country. At the time, fires and landslides were recorded, but no one died.
