  • Earthquake’s center was Ridgecrest, near Death Valley
  • Reports of tremors felt in Las Vegas and Los Angeles

The largest earthquake to hit southern California in years rumbled across the region on Thursday morning, striking a remote part of the state with a magnitude of 6.4 on the Richter scale.
The earthquake’s center was near the small city of Ridgecrest, near Death Valley national park and about 100 miles (160km) from Los Angeles. There were reports of people in Las Vegas and Los Angeles feeling the tremors.

Bigger quakes last for a longer time. The fault was producing energy for about 5 seconds. What you feel is that plus reverberations

Called to check on my Gramma. She is 86. Born in Los Angeles in 1933. Raised in South Central. Seen it all.
Me: Hi Gram. Everything okay there? You okay? Anything you need?
Gram: (laughing) Oh yeah. That was a good one. Kinda fun.

We will rebuild

Great! Not only did we just have an , they also changed the name of our city.
