6.4 earthquake in California, near Death Valley. I felt it in Vegas, no damages in Vegas but there were some in California.

You bet! A solid 10 seconds of house rolling & hanging lights swaying. We are opposite from Vegas, SW of Ridgecrest about 180? miles.

Another one just a few minutes ago! About the same place as yesterday's quake. My whole house shook for about 10 seconds.

Preliminary reports say 7.1 but now they're saying could be more around 6.9

Felt it here 276 miles north of Ridgecrest! House swayed for a while, hanging lights swinging etc. Even my dogs got scared. Think a bigger one is coming? :shock:

The 6.4 was the Major quake on 4th, but Lucy Jones of Cal Tech said there is about a 10% chance of a bigger one within a few days. That happened. So now the 7.1 is the Major and 6.4 was a foreshock. But the same probability rules again - 10% we get another one larger than 7.1 with a week or so.

Evidently the 'Little Lake'? fault is growing in length toward the NW. Many large aftershocks too.
