    A MAGNITUDE 4.6 earthquake has rocked parts of California and tremors were felt in LA County. Experts are warning of aftershocks after the quake struck the city of Ridgecrest just after 6pm local time on July 14. 1An earthquake hit parts of California on July 14Credit: USGS Tremors were felt in the cities of Victorville and Barstow, according to ABC7. Locals claimed tremors were felt in Bakersfield, Long Beach, and Big Bear City, Mercury News reports. The quake was the largest to rock the Golden State for six months. It came just years after Ridgecrest was rocked by a 7.1 quake that struck during the July 4 holiday weekend in 2019. Seismologist Lucy Jones tweeted: “Today's M4.6 is an aftershock to the 2019 M7.1 Ridgecrest earthquake. “Aftershock sequences to M≥7s last for years or even decades. “They follow a "hyperbolic decay" meaning the number drops off quickly and then continues with a long, slowly decaying tail.” Most read in The US SunTRUMP TRAGEDY Donald Trump's first wife Ivana dies at 73, family confirmsDANGEROUS VIRUS Warning as baby dies from...
    RIDGECREST (CBSLA) – A magnitude-3.4 earthquake occurred in the Searles Valley in northwestern San Bernardino County early Friday morning. Nov. 5, 2021. (U.S. Geological Survey) The earthquake occurred at 5:03 a.m. in the Searles Valley area of the Mojave Desert, about 11 miles northeast of the Kern County city of Ridgecrest, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It occurred at a depth of 6.7 miles. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury. A pair of massive earthquakes struck the Ridgecrest and Searles Valley in the Mohave Desert on consecutive days in July of 2019. On the morning of July 4, 2019, the region was hit by a magnitude 6.4 quake, the largest to hit Southern California in 20 years. However, that turned out to only be a foreshock to the main shock, the magnitude 7.1 earthquake which struck on the night of July 5, ten times larger than the 6.4 quake.

    Earthquake : (. Spanish) – A new quake was recorded on Friday night in California. According to reports from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), it was of magnitude 7.1. Initially it registered at 6.9. The seismic focus was located 0.9 km deep and the epicenter was located 17 km north-northeast of Ridgecrest, in southern California. This Thursday a 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook the state and had more than 1,400 aftershocks. The Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted Friday that there was a shake but no damage is recorded. The tremor was felt in Las Vegas, like the earthquake the day before. Donald Castle, who lives in Porterville west of Ridgecrest, said his house shook in 20-25 seconds. “It was more shaking than the one we had on July 4. It lasted longer and was stronger, “she said. The NBA Summer League game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the New York Knicks in Las Vegas was delayed Friday after reports of the earthquake. Markers and speakers near the stadium roof shook when the earthquake struck. Multiple...
    Earthquake : (.) – A powerful 7.1 magnitude quake shook buildings and broke foundations in southern California on Friday night, the day after another strong shaking. Here’s what you need to know about the second quake: READ: New powerful earthquake in California: magnitude 7.1 Where it occurred The Friday night quake occurred 11 miles (17 km) northeast of Ridgecrest, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its power It was five times more powerful than Thursday’s 6.4-magnitude quake, also located near Ridgecrest. This is how we report it: The damages Gas leaks caused fires in Ridgecrest’s infrastructure, residents reported disruptions to the water supply, and electricity and communications were disrupted in some areas, said Mark Ghilarducci, director of the California Government Office of Emergency Management. Several injuries were reported. Now what’s next A state of emergency has been declared in Ridgecrest and in San Bernardino County and seismologists are expecting further aftershocks.
    Earthquake : (Photo by Mario Tama / .) (.) – The earth continued to rumble. Communities in Southern California had just begun repairs after the quake struck on the morning of July 4, when an even stronger quake struck the area just over 24 hours later. READ: A devastating California earthquake by 2030 is possible and this is the reason (Photo by Mario Tama / .) The two earthquakes have been the strongest in the region in decades. This is how they compare. The second earthquake was 11 times stronger The 6.4 magnitude earthquake that occurred Thursday morning had its epicenter near Ridgecrest, a community west of the Mojave Desert and approximately 150 miles (240 km) north of Los Angeles. He had residents run out of their homes, and the thousands of aftershocks that followed had them on alert for hours. A 7.1 magnitude quake struck the same area on Friday night, shaking buildings and leaving cracks in the streets. It was 11 times more powerful than the first quake, according to the United States Geological...
    Scientists have warned that last year’s Ridgecrest quakes in Southern California have increased the risk of a major San Andreas Fault earthquake. The quakes, warn catastrophe modeling company Temblor, have placed stress on the Garlock Fault that links the Ridgecrest Faults with the San Andreas Fault. In a blog post, Temblor CEO Ross Stein and Shinji Toda of Tohoku University explained that if the Garlock Fault ruptured in a large shock, “it would likely trigger a San Andreas earthquake north of Los Angeles.” A paper on the research has been published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. “In our study, we developed a new method to forecast future seismicity,” Stein and Toda wrote in the post. “These forecasts are not earthquake predictions, which have so far proven impossible. Rather, they are probabilistic, framed in the language of chance. We use past seismicity, the stress imparted by recent large and moderate earthquakes and the equations governing how fault friction varies in time and space (‘rate-state friction’) to estimate the likelihood of future earthquakes of different sizes.” The experts...
    More than 3,000 earthquakes rocked Ridgecrest, California in a single week last year and as a result, has increased chances of the 'Big One' striking the San Andreas fault. The tremors stressed the Garlock Fault, which stretches 160 miles along the Mojave Desert and connects the site of the Ridgecrest quakes to the massive San Andreas fault. Garlock was previously estimated to have a 0.023 percent chance of experiencing a quake of magnitude 7.5 or great in the next 12 months, but now following 2019 that risk has increased to 2.3 percent. However, the greatest threat looms over the San Andreas fault - odds of a massive earthquake have tripled from 0.35 percent in the next year to 1.15 percent. Scroll down for video  More than 3,000 earthquakes rocked Ridgecrest, California in a single week last year and as a result, has increased chances of the 'Big One' striking the San Andreas fault from  0.35 percent in the next year to 1.15 percent Ross Stein, an author of the study who was previously a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey,...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Ridgecrest earthquakes of 2019 might have increased the chances of a big temblor along the San Andreas fault in the next 12 months, according to a study published Monday in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. The Los Angeles Times reported that scientists found there was a 2.3% chance of a large earthquake on the Garlock fault, which runs along the north edge of the Mojave Desert in the next year, which increases the likelihood of a magnitude 7.5 or greater temblor on the San Andreas fault to 1.15%. Ross Stein, an earthquake scientist emeritus of the U.S. Geological Survey and adjunct professor of geophysics at Stanford University, told The Times that the numbers indicate a near tripling of the odds of a large quake on the San Andreas fault. “Now, you can think of the Ridgecrest earthquake as being so far from Greater Los Angeles … that it is nearly harmless,” Stein told The Times. “But the problem is that … the Ridgecrest earthquake brought the Garlock fault closer to rupture. If...
    A new study suggests that last year’s Ridgecrest earthquakes increased the chance of a large earthquake on California’s San Andreas fault. The study, published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America on Monday, says there is now a 2.3% chance of an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 or greater in the next 12 months on a section of the 160-mile-long Garlock fault, which runs along the northern edge of the Mojave Desert. That increased likelihood, in turn, would cause there to be a 1.15% chance of a large earthquake on the San Andreas fault in the next year. Those odds may seem small. But they’re a substantial jump from what the chances were before last year’s Ridgecrest, Calif., earthquakes, whose epicenters were about 125 miles northeast of downtown L.A. The new odds mean a large quake on the Garlock fault is now calculated to be 100 times more likely — rising from 0.023% in the next year to 2.3%. And the chance of a large quake on the San Andreas has roughly tripled, from 0.35% in the...
