L.A. firefighters hit the streets Friday to conduct a survey after a magnitude-5.4 aftershock to the Ridgecrest Earthquake struck in the same area as The Fourth of July quake, near Ridgecrest in Kern County.
It struck at 4.07 a.m. at a depth of around 4.3 miles, its epicenter 9.7 miles west of Searles Valley, according to a computer-generated report from the U.S. Geological Survey.
Following the quake, which was felt in parts of Los Angeles although not as widely as Thursday’s quake, firefighters from all 106 Los Angeles Fire Department stations began surveying their districts for damage, LAFD spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said. No damage was found, and the LAFD resumed normal operations, she said.
