An earthquake on New Year’s and just days later three minor quakes were recorded over the weekend.

The early morning quake on New Year’s was upgraded to a 5.4 located on the Mendocino Fault some 80 miles west of Ferndale. If the quake had struck closer to shore, it could have caused damage. So with the recent movement, could the next big quake be on the way... We talked to a local expert to find out.

“So for example our 5.4, it’s still possible it’s fore shock of something bigger. Everyday that passes, we’re nearly a week away and it makes those chances less likely. But it’s possible this afternoon we could have a 6.5,” said Lori Dengler, HSU Geology Professor.
