California is facing multiple natural disasters, including a tropical storm, a wildfire, and an earthquake.
The earthquake had a magnitude of 5.1, which is considered to be moderate.
It was felt in much of Southern California, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ventura.
There have been no reports of major damage, but there have been some reports of minor cracks in walls.
The earthquake happened at a time when the state was already dealing with the other natural disasters.
Local officials are juggling multiple emergencies.
The earthquake was moderate compared to some of the larger ones that have caused extensive destruction in California.
The 6.7-magnitude earthquake that struck the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1994 released 125 times more energy than today’s Ojai earthquake.
The Loma Prieta earthquake, which left more than 60 people dead in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989, was 253 times more powerful than the Ojai quake.
Californians should be prepared for natural disasters and know what to do to stay safe.
