An earthquake shook a large swath of southern California and parts of Nevada on Thursday morning, causing the hanging lamps to swing and the photo frames shake. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.
The 6.4 magnitude earthquake measured occurred near the Mojave Desert, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles, near the city of Ridgecrest, California.
The United States Geological Survey initially said it measured at a magnitude of 6.6.
People from Las Vegas to the Pacific coast reported that they felt a continuous movement and turned to social networks to report it.
Local emergency agencies also turned to social networks to ask people to only call 911 for emergencies.
"We are very aware of the significant earthquake that has just occurred in Southern California. DO NOT call 9-1-1 unless there are injuries or other dangerous conditions. Do not call to ask questions please," the LAPD said in a statement. . posted on Twitter
Ashleigh Chandler, an EMT helicopter rescue in Fort Irwin, Calif., Said the earthquake occurred when he was preparing for a July 4 party.
"I was in the living room preparing everything, we began to feel the tremor, so I look up and the bottles of wine start to vibrate and I thought: & # 39; They're going to fall & # 39 ;.
"My sister was in the house and my dog, so we took everyone out and then it was over. It was like 15, 20 seconds, maybe. It was a pretty good shake, so I'm out of breath."
"Everyone is fine."
