Earthquake season?

We felt an earthquake the other day that the USGS measured at 4.7 centered in Lomita (near Hawthorne and Inglewood).  It involved the Newport – Inglewood fault.  Initial reports that put this quake at 5.0.

Today we had another quake.  Ms. Jones from the USGS reported that it was an aftershock of the earlier quake.  It was not nearly as jolting as the 4.7, but still unsettled some nerves.  Today’s aftershock was reported to be 4.1.
