California earthquake: Searles Valley quake generates over 100 aftershocks

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.

A magnitude 7.1 earthquake rattled Southern California and parts of the southwest Friday night, just one day after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake shook parts of California.

The quake was recorded at 8:19 p.m. and lasted about a minute in Ventura County. It was felt in downtown Los Angeles as a rolling motion that seemed to last at least a half-minute. It was also felt as far away as Las Vegas and Phoenix, and the USGS says it also was felt in Mexico.

Thursday morning's 6.4 earthquake was recategorized as a "foreshock" to Friday night's larger one.

July 4th earthquake won't delay the Big One. And it might have worsened quake strain Does a good-size earthquake help relieve pent-up seismic stress? Does that postpone the day of reckoning when the Big One finally arrives?

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.
