California gets jolted AGAIN, this time with an even bigger tremor

I don’t know how Californians do it, living on top of a ticking time bomb, with frequent reminders of just how powerfully this planet is churning underneath us.

Maybe it’s the weather?  Or perhaps it’s the prestige of a glitzy SoCal life?  In either case, those who choose to live in the earthquake-prone metropolises of The Golden State certainly have their reasons…but their dedication may have been tested this week.

On the Fourth of July, deep in the Mojave Desert, a significant 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck, thankfully causing no serious injuries, and with only minimal damage to most homes and infrastructure.

As it turns out, this sizable shake was only just the beginning.

A magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit Kern County in California on Friday evening — just a day after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake that was the largest temblor in the region in two decades, the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed.

Shaking on Friday evening was felt as far away as Las Vegas and Los Angeles and into northern Mexico. The USGS said there was a 5 percent chance a larger quake could still follow.

The newest earthquake’s epicenter was about 10 miles north-northeast of Ridgecrest, Calif., about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles, in the same area where Thursday’s quake occurred. The Ridgecrest area has had more than 100 aftershocks since Thursday’s earthquake and experts warn there could be more to come.

Social media users took to the digital airwaves to tell their stories.

Experts believe that several more aftershocks are still to come, and have urged citizens in the area to prepare themselves accordingly.
