REDLANDS–An active earthquake swarm” that began February 13th is keeping elements of the Inland Empire on edge.

The shaking has been traced to an epicenter south of Redlands in San Timoteo Canyon.

Triple back-to-back quakes felt just before noon Friday were among the strongest at M3.6.

Seismologist Tom Heaton at Cal Tech described the sequence as ‘not unusual’.

“It’s really difficult to predict what can happen plus a swarm. Sometimes they go on for weeks or months. Sometimes they’re over in several days.”

Earthquake ‘swarms’ usually occur in active geothermal areas. This sequence is associated with the San Jacinto Fault it is happening in a depth of 3 to 4 miles.

There has been no reported damage.
