There have been recent reports of earthquake activity happening all the way up the Imperial Valley. A seismic swarm is when a specific area experiences earthquakes in short intervals of time. There are two reasons for this happening. One is that it is still experiencing aftershocks from the Easter Earthquake from two years ago. The other, a seismic swarm at the tip of the Brawley Seismic Zone. The Imperial Valley has experienced so much earthquake activity in the past years.
Abbot, a geologist, says that the area where the Imperial Valley is is a place that attracts earthquake activity with all of the magma running beneath the ground. For now the earthquake activity is going slowly so the land will be in decent shape. However, as the fault lines begin acting up, it is going to be a dramatic effect. The next earthquake is estimated to be in the range of a magnitude of 7.8.
