I’ll never forget the 4th of July 2019. And nor will the residents of Ridgecrest, CA where large earthquakes on back-to-back days rumbled more dramatically than the fireworks. Felt throughout Southern California, Magnitude 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes occurred in Ridgecrest on July 4 and 5, 2019. We commemorate this one-year anniversary with stories of resilience.
Did you just feel an earthquake and want to figure out for yourself if it triggered a Jumpstart payment? Here’s how anyone can look this up:
A Magnitude 6.5 earthquake occurred early this morning, centered in a remote region of Nevada about 60 miles east of the California border. Light shaking was felt widely throughout the Central Valley of California and up to Reno, Nevada.
Aftershocks in the range of Magnitude 4 and 5 have been continuing to occur this morning.
Remember: when you start to feel shaking, Drop, Cover, and Hold On.
Californians know that the Big One is not ‘if,’ but ‘when.’ And no one wishes for a large earthquake – not now, or ever. There is never a good time for an earthquake. But right now might actually be the least-bad time.
