Man may have been crushed to death by vehicle during natural disaster

An earthquake-damaged street

A 7.1-magnitude quake struck in the same region the following night.

Damage from two powerful earthquakes of magnitudes-6.4 and 7.1 respectively which rattled Southern California on July 4 and July 5 is visible from space, NASA maps have revealed.

The post-earthquake imagery was acquired on Monday, July 8 and compared with April 2018 data from the same area. In the picture, each color cycle represents 4.8 inches or 12 centimeters of ground displacement either toward or away from the satellite. In the southeast corner of the image, linear features appear to slice through colored whirls and likely mark where the surface was sliced open by the quakes. That's an quake every 1 minute and 7 seconds. Officials have estimated the damage to California may exceed $100 million.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) says the natural disaster occurred at a depth of about 8 kilometres, and was the result of strike-slip faulting (plates grinding against each other in a roughly horizontal fashion) at a juncture of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates known as the Eastern California shear zone.

Residents of the little community of Trona gathered at a town hall Wednesday to hear officials give updates on the recovery.

That has prompted residents of the San Francsico Bay Area, far north of Ridgequest, are making sure they have everything they need in case a big quake strikes and they have to evacuate, Kron 4 reported.

The Planet Labs images also show a new darker line to the left of the epicentre, which its CEO Will Marshall said on Twitter was evidence of dewatering.

The recommendations were provided by the Earthquake Country Alliance , a partner of the USGS.
