After the second strong earthquake in as many weeks, seismologists have warned that Friday’s 5.1 tremor that rumbled through Los Angeles could herald a much larger quake.

The series of earthquakes began at 8.03pm, peaking at 9.09pm with a tremor centered near Brea in Orange County causing Disneyland to close, gas leaks, water main breaks and a rockslide near the epicenter, according to authorities as up to 40 aftershocks were felt.

US Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones said that, ‘There could be an even larger earthquake in the next few hours or the next few days,’ as more than two dozen aftershocks ranging from magnitudes 2 to 3.6 were recorded, according to the USGS.
