BREAKING: Another Massive Quake ROCKS California – Here’s The 411

Written by K. Walker on July 6, 2019

It may not be ‘the big one’ but it still managed to make an awful mess. It looks like this might not be the end of it, either.

There have been more than 1,700 aftershocks after the magnitude 6.4 quake on Thursday. That major quake has been relabeled a “foreshock” now that a 7.1 quake has been recorded. More earthquakes could still come, including another at around the magnitude 6 mark.

The Friday 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 felt on Thursday.

The quake, which interrupted sports games and sparked fires, was felt in Las Vegas and downtown Los Angeles as a rolling motion that seemed to last at least a half-minute.

Seismologist Lucy Jones says that there is a 1 in 10 chance of another magnitude 7.0 or greater quake, and that the probability of a 5.0 is “approaching certainty.”

The 7.1 magnitude quake on Friday was 11 times stronger than the 6.4 on Thursday.

Dr Lucy Jones, a seismologist for the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), said Friday’s quake was the most powerful to hit Southern California since another 7.1 temblor in the same area in 1999.

Jones also warned there is about a one-in-10 chance that another 7.0 quake could hit within the next week, and the the chance of a 5.0-magnitude quake ‘is approaching certainty’.

While some people were concerned about the quake, the Dodgers and Padres kept right on playing.

Meanwhile, the ballgame played on.

What? You guys haven’t seen an earthquake before?

 

Several videos of pools spilling over were posted to social media.

Splish splash.

Some folks decided to roll with it.

 

Products that had fallen from store shelves left a huge mess for employees to clean up.

Some would weep over the lost wine…

Others, over the headache the poor librarian has to deal with:

The damage left wasn’t just to store shelves.

Some of the damage was not trivial at all — like this fire:

For all the havoc, the good news is that there has been no loss of life.

Get Doug Giles’ new book:

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
