Two tremors reported Friday – NBC Los Angeles

A pair of earthquakes hit the Ridgecrest area on Friday, the US Geological Survey said.

A magnitude of 2.8 occurred at 9:28 am, followed by 3.2 at 12:45 pm, the USGS said. Both quakes were centered 6 miles northeast of the city at a depth of about 5 miles.

People in the area reported feeling faint to mild tremors, according to the USGS.

Ridgecrest, located about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles, was rocked by back-to-back earthquakes — 7.1 and 6.4 in magnitude — in the summer of 2019.

The first was one of the strongest earthquakes to hit Southern California in 20 years. It left behind cracked and burning buildings, broken roads, clogged railways, and leaking water and gas. No fatalities were reported.

Many people were in bed on Monday when a series of earthquakes shook SoCal. Chef Sam DiGiovanna has some advice and reminders.
