Accidental Alert Warns California Of An Earthquake That Happened In 1925
|June 22, 2017||Posted by TravelKinds.Com under General||
An algorithmic error told Californians they’d be in for a major earthquake on Wednesday, but the earthquake had already happened ― in 1925.
The automatically generated report from the U.S. Geological Survey indicated that a magnitude 6.8 quake would occur in the Pacific Ocean 10 miles west of Santa Barbara.
Alerts were sent for a M6.8 in California. This was an error. More information to come.

As a frame of reference, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake in 1989 killed 63 people and caused $6 billion of damage in California.
