California has been hit by a cluster of small earthquakes, with three measuring above 4.0 magnitude.

In all 200 quakes have been recorded since Monday under the Salton Sea, in a region  just south of the San Andreas fault.

According to the Los Angeles Times, this is only the third time this many quakes have been felt in the region since sensors were installed in 1932.

The cluster or swarm of minor earthquakes hit a sparsely populated area, including Bombay Beach, which has only 171 inhabitants.

However this level of seismic activity has concerned scientists, the LA Times added.

Time to top up the preps and keep the bugout bag, animal crates ready and the truck full of gasoline!
