Last Friday, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Ridgecrest and was felt throughout southern California. This earthquake followed the 6.4 magnitude foreshock in the same region on Thursday.  

Trona, CA is near the epicenter of Thursday's foreshock and is reported to have suffered significant damages. This afternoon, Supervisor Lovingood released an informative update for Trona residents that can be found

The USGS has created an
updates page to share the latest information on the survey and mapping of the two earthquakes. The Earthquake Hazards Program by the USGS is also a great tool for learning how to stay safe during a quake and how to prepare for the event of one.  

The USGS provides science about the natural hazards that threaten lives and livelihoods, such as water, energy, minerals, and other natural resources that we rely on. Their scientists develop new methods and tools to supply timely, relevant, and useful information about the Earth and its processes.
