Malibu earthquake rattles Southern California

February 10, 2024

A magnitude 4.6 earthquake struck near Malibu on Friday and was felt across a wide swath of Southern California. Dakota Rose Koep was driving when the earthquake struck. The lawyer, a Texan who served in the U.S. Marines in California, told the court he was an "earthquake virgin." Malibu Mayor Steve Uhring told Spectrum News he was home when the quake hit and felt only a brief shaking. Then, on Jan. 24, a magnitude 4.2 earthquake hit in San Bernardino.
