A magnitude 5.4 earthquake has hit this morning in the same area one day after the powerful 6.4 magnitude Independence Day earthquake hit the region in Southern California.
The quake is one in a large series of aftershocks to hit the area since Thursday’s 6.4 earthquake.
This 5.4 earthquake struck at approximately 4:07 a.m. local time and was centered about 9.7 miles from west of Searles Valley and 10.8 miles north-northeast of Ridgecrest, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of damage in the surrounding area. People felt the quake in various parts of Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Orange counties.
At an afternoon press conference, California Institute of Technology seismologists said that there is still a 6% chance of a magnitude 6.0 earthquake or larger in the coming days.
Seismologists said it appears that two faults are involved with the 6.4 quake, which was large enough to break the surface.
Seismologists also said the damage in Ridgecrest could have been much worse if it was an older community. Ridgecrest started in the 1940s, which was after California had seismic provisions in the statewide building code.
Thursday’s Independence Day earthquake was the strongest earthquake in the Southern California region since 1999, with people throughout Southern California reporting feeling it.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that earthquakes will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the coming end of the age.
These are signs of the Last Days revealing its time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles (Matthew 16:19) who were authorized described how (Acts 2). Which brings peace and joy in the Holy Spirit in this life and eternal life in the world to come.
