California earthquake: Searles Valley quake generates over 100 aftershocks The strongest earthquake to hit Southern California in nearly 20 years has prompted one city to declare a state of emergency Thursday, and shook residents from Las Vegas to Orange County. The quake, with a magnitude of 6.4, was centered near Ridgecrest, a community west of the Mojave Desert and about 150 miles north of Los Angeles. At least 159 aftershocks of magnitude 2.5 or greater were recorded after the earthquake, according to USGS Seismologist Robert Graves. It is a higher than normal number, but not unprecedented, he said. The largest of them were magnitude 4.6.

Southern California isn't doing enough to fix earthquake-vulnerable buildings, expert says.
"I don't want to frighten people," one expert said. "But I think it's important to be transparent. This is a real issue." O'Dell estimated that half a million people likely call these structures home. That estimate is drawn, in part, on a recent survey done in the city of Los Angeles that found roughly 12,000 soft-story structures built before 1978. Extrapolating out across a county that has dozens of cities and a population of more than 10 million, O'Dell said the area could easily have double that number.
