6.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits California


A powerful 6.0 magnitude quake rocked California today, with tremors sending shockwaves through buildings.

The tremor was felt in many parts of California, including Los Angeles, and Nevada shortly after it struck near Lone Pine.

Shocks were even felt as far away as Las Vegas, according to reports.

It happened just north of Ridgecrest, the place where a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck

The tremor occurred after the region was hit by a series of smaller quakes up to 4.5 magnitude in strength in the days prior.

At first the USGS, which monitors earthquakes across the globe, said the tremor was 6.0 magnitude in strength.

It also said the tremor struck at a depth of 5.5miles (ca. 9 km).

But, the organization later revised the strength of the quake down to 5.8.

There have been no reports of damage or lives lost during the earthquake.

It comes after a 7.4 magnitude quake shook Mexico and triggered a tsunami warning for several Central American nations.
