Earthquake strikes near Los Angeles for second straight day
PHOENIX — For the second day in a row, an earthquake shook the Pacific Coast and was felt from Los Angeles to parts of Phoenix.
The estimated 6.9 magnitude quake delayed action in the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League and at the Los Angeles Dodgers game against the San Diego Padres.
Thursday’s earthquake was an estimated 6.4 magnitude.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at 8:19 p.m. Friday and was centered 11 miles from Ridgecrest, Calif. The agency initially said the earthquake had a magnitude of 7.1.
The USGS says it also was felt in Mexico.
If the preliminary magnitude is correct, it would be the largest Southern California quake in 20 years.
