A magnitude-7.1 earthquake hit Southern California on Friday dusk — only a day after a magnitude-6.4 trembler that was a largest trembler in a segment in dual decades, a U.S. Geological Survey confirmed.
The newest earthquake’s epicenter was about 10 miles north northeast of Ridgecrest, Calif., about 150 northeast of Los Angeles, nearby where Thursday’s upheaval occurred. The Ridgecrest area has had some-more than 100 aftershocks given Thursday’s trembler and experts advise there could be some-more to come.
Thursday’s upheaval is now being deliberate a foreshock to Friday’s earthquake, a USGS said.
Ridgecrest, a city of about 29,000 residents, is home to Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, that was sealed Friday for reserve inspections following Thursday’s quake.
Shaking on Friday dusk was felt as distant divided as Las Vegas and Los Angeles and into northern Mexico. Multiple aftershocks have occurred given a quake. The USGS pronounced there’s a 5 percent possibility a incomparable upheaval could still follow.

She combined that 20 years though a magnitude-6.0 or incomparable is not normal. Generally, they start in California about each 5 years.
About 20 percent of earthquakes strike in both directions, that might have been a box Friday, Jones added.
“We don’t get a 7’s really often,” she said.
