Earthquakes near Patterson and Westley

Multiple earthquakes were recorded near the western portion of central California, the biggest of which was initially recorded as a 4.5 magnitude.

The quake struck around 9:15 p.m. local time, according to the USGS, and was centered around nine miles northeast of Westley, in Stanislaus County.

Another five earthquakes were felt in the region Monday, but none registering higher than a 4.0 magnitude.

According to the USGS, these quakes generated moderate shaking and a low likelihood of casualties and damage.

Dr. Angie Lux, project scientist with the Berkeley Seismology Lab, told ABC 10 this "swarm" of earthquakes is not too uncommon to see, and so far, everything appears to be status quo.

"We have a number of earthquakes that are happening down in the area. But so far, everything seems to be more or less normal. I would say nothing unexpected," Lux told ABC 10.

Two earthquakes recorded in Yucaipa, Fontana

Two additional earthquakes were also recorded closer to the Los Angeles area, in Yucaipa and Fontana, California.

The quake recorded near Fontana registered as a 3.0 magnitude and generated weak shaking, according to the USGS. The center of the quake was recorded about one mile southeast of Fontana and about 10 miles east of San Bernardino.

The second quake registered as a 2.6 magnitude and the center was recorded about five miles west of Yucaipa, California. According to the USGS, the quake generated light shaking and no damage was immediately reported.
