Surface Rupture from Ridgecrest Earthquake Spotted from Space

Seismic Activity Along San Andreas Fault Could Trigger Devastating Earthquake by 2030

The first casualty of the Fourth of July 6.4-magnitude natural disaster at Ridgecrest, California, has been reported after a 56-year-old man from Pahrump, Nevada, was found squashed under his jeep.

An quake of magnitude 7.1 shook the remote town of Ridgecrest in the Mojave desert on Friday, 1-1/2 days after one of 6.4 magnitude, both of which were felt as far as Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The man was apparently working under the vehicle when the quake struck last Thursday morning at about 10:30 a.m. local time.

A 56-year-musty man from Pahrump, Nevada, was learned under his vehicle after going missing for six days, primarily primarily based on the Nye County Sheriff's Region of business.

The identity of the man is not being released until next of kin have been notified. The Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake military base nearby remains closed to non-essential personnel as damage assessments continue following last week's powerful earthquakes in the area.

400,000 join Facebook event to 'storm' Area 51 and 'see them aliens'
Area 51, also known as Homey Airport, is a remote outpost of the Edwards Air Force Base located about 125 miles from Las Vegas. More than 400,000 people have signed up to join an event to stormthe world-famous Area 51 in search of aliens.

The quake reached a magnitude of 7.1, making it strong enough to shake buildings, knocking items off of shelves and walls and scaring two live TV anchors who were being filmed as the quake reached its peak. It's unclear when personnel and their families will be able to return. "There's a lot of cleaning up that still has to happen", she said.

Closer to their epicenters, the quakes sparked several fires, damaged dozens of structures, disrupted power and gas service, triggered rockslides and cut off water access in the town of Trona.

On Tuesday, the Trump administration declared a federal emergency for areas of Southern California devastated by the Ridgecrest quakes. Charities and governmental agencies ramped up recovery efforts in the small town ravaged by earthquakes and aftershocks. "It's extremely unlikely by now to have another magnitude 7" quake resulting from that sequence.
