6 July 2019

A powerful earthquake rocked Southern California for the second time in as many days on Friday.

The magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit about 11 miles from Ridgecrest, the town in Kern County which was very close to the epicenter of the magnitude 6.4 quake that was felt on Thursday.

While the United States Geological Survey measured 7.1, the European Mediterranean Seismological Agency said the quake was a magnitude 6.9.

The quake was felt downtown as a rolling motion that seemed to last at least a half-minute.
