A series of earthquakes shook the US yesterday with several hitting worryingly close to the Ring of Fire, sparking fears a massive tremor could be on the way.

The most powerful of this latest cluster – which also shook Alaska and California – came in Perry, Oklahoma, where a 4.3 magnitude tremor struck.

This follows on from a flurry of earthquakes in California at the weekend, with experts warning residents to ‘get those earthquake preparedness kits ready’.

Both California and Alaska are on the much-feared Ring of Fire – the most active fault-line in the world.

The latest earthquake struck in Perry on 9 April at 5:20am CST (12:20pm GMT) with tremors felt as far as 17 miles (27km) southwest.

In the last 24 hours three earthquakes struck in California with others felt in Alaska, Nebraska and Texas, writes the Express.

Since 6 April there have been at least 16 noticeable earthquakes in Oklahoma, according to the Geologic Survey.

There were 13 quakes over the weekend but no reports of injury or serious damage.

A 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck near the Channel Islands on Thursday and was the strongest in Southern California for several years.

Although it did not cause any major damage, the quake did cause minor landslides and earth movement on Santa Cruz Island.
