Southern California has been hit by another earthquake measuring 7.1 magnitudes which rocked buildings and cracked foundations, sending terrified residents sleeping on the streets a day after another temblor hit. A 7.1 magnitude earthquake is the biggest tremor to strike in 20 years.
It comes just two days after a 6.4 magnitude tremor hit the state which had been the largest to hit Southern California in 20 years. The tremor was reported 11 miles from Ridge-crest according to the European Quake Monitor.
The earthquake was centered in the Mojave Desert near Ridge-crest. It struck at a shallow depth and was widely felt across the region, including in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. However, authorities say there are no deaths or major building damage reported from the quake, which struck on Friday night.
