CNN is reporting that a 5.8-magnitude earthquake has struck Los Angeles.

Check out these resources on earthquake reporting, which I compiled in April when a quake struck southern Illinois and Indiana. In the post I link to earthquake data from the U.S. Geological Survey and address:

  • How are quakes measured?
  • What are faults, where are they and how do they work?
  • Can we predict earthquakes?
  • Should you get earthquake insurance?
