7.1 Quake Rocks SoCal, Searles Valley Hit Hard For Second Time In 24 Hours



LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)  — A 7.1 quake rocked Southern California Friday evening.  The quake struck at 8:21 p.m. and was centered in the same location as Thursday’s. 6.4.  KCAL9 anchor Sara Donchey held co-anchor Juan Fernandez’ arm as she steadied herself before ducking under her desk.  He, meanwhile, reported feeling nauseous about the quake that felt like it wasn’t going to stop.

CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Lesley Marin heard from her friend Laura who was attending this evening’s Dodgers/Padres game. “She said everyone started to scream.”

The 7.1 quake is now considered a foreshock to Thursday’s event.  Since yesterday, there were more than 1,400 smaller quakes. The largest recorded about 5.0.  Caltech on Thursday said there was a 6 percent chance there would be a quake of 6.0 or larger rocking the same area in the coming days.  Variety reported that Disneyland shut down rides.
