Recent Earthquakes Shake Baja California

Is a catastrophe approaching? Multiple earthquakes hit Baja California causing fear among residents in the area of Guadalupe Victoria. Reports indicate that at least 35 earthquakes have shaken the region in the last 24 hours. The magnitudes of these tremors range from 3.0 to 5.0 on the Richter scale, with the strongest being a 5.0.

The proximity of these earthquakes to the San Andreas Fault has raised concerns among locals. There is a fear that a category 9 earthquake could occur, causing severe impact in both the United States and Mexico. According to Telediario, the earthquakes on May 12 have kept authorities on high alert, with the one recorded at 12:22 hours being the strongest, occurring 24 kilometers from Guadalupe Victoria with a depth of 8.4 kilometers.

States like Guerrero, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Baja California are most affected by earthquakes caused by the San Andreas Fault. “The Big One” is the most feared earthquake that could trigger a major disaster from California to Cabo Mendocino. While some predict a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, it could potentially reach 9.0 on the Richter scale.

At this point, it is unknown whether the 35 earthquakes in the last 24 hours in Baja California are linked to the San Andreas Fault. The situation continues to be monitored closely by authorities.
