Breaking News: Earthquake rattles Southern California

Shaking felt more than 150 miles from epicenter

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake hit California around 10:45 a.m. local time Wednesday, 1:45 p.m. EDT.

The epicenter was near Cartoga, in the Owens Valley region below the eastern flank of the Sierra Nevada. This is between Sequoia and Death Valley national parks, a remote area about 160 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. However, people felt shaking in the Los Angeles metro area.

People at several businesses in Lone Pine and Bishop, both close to the epicenter, told KABC-TV that while the shaking was “intense,” they didn’t see any damage.

SONAR Critical Events: California earthquake, Wednesday, June 24, 2020

This comes a day after a much stronger 7.4 magnitude quake hit southern Mexico, near the resort of Huatulco, killing at least six people and damaging hundreds of homes and businesses. At least six others were hurt, including two people in Mexico City, more than 300 miles from the epicenter.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist, said there was a 4.6 magnitude quake in the same area Monday night.

“The M4.6 was a foreshock to this event,” Jones tweeted. “We don’t know if an even bigger quake could be coming. Like every quake, there is a 5% chance of something bigger.”

This is a developing situation. FreightWaves will have post updates as more information becomes available.
