Los Angeles and surrounding areas brought in the fourth of July with a 6.6 magnitude earthquake. It lasted about 30 seconds.

The quake has been labeled as the strongest shake-up in several years and it centered near Ridgecrest in San Bernardino County, which is over a hundred miles away from Los Angeles. It was also felt from Orange County and Las Vegas.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Southern California has not felt a quake this strong since the 1994 6.6 Northridge quake, which killed many people and caused billions in structural damage.

“We are very much aware of the significant earthquake that just occurred in Southern California. Please DO NOT call 9-1-1 unless there are injuries or other dangerous conditions. Don’t call for questions please,” the LAPD said in a statement.

As of now, there have not been any reports of injuries or major damage to structures.
