Over the past 30 plus hours, over 240 earthquakes have left the area of Brawley California shaken.
The quakes, which began last Saturday evening, have been averaging eight quakes an hour, but many quakes have occurred within only a few minutes of each other.
The 2010 United States Census reported that Brawley had a population of 24,953 and is located in Imperial County.
The area is no stranger to earthquakes, but the latest quakes have brought some damage.
Capt. Jesse Zendejas of the Brawley Fire Department had stated that the earthquakes caused cosmetic damage to at least three buildings dating to the 1930s in downtown Brawley.

USGS Seismologist Rob Graves was quoted as saying “Obviously, all this activity is related or interconnected, but it doesn’t really follow the typical main shock, aftershock activity”
