A 7.1 size seismic tremor has shaken pieces of Southern California, the greatest tremor to strike in 20 years.

It struck at the shallow profundity of 0.9km (0.6 miles) and its focal point was close to the city of Ridgecrest, about 240km north-east of Los Angeles.

A 6.4-extent shudder hit a similar territory on Thursday at a profundity of about 11km.

Seismologist Dr Lucy Jones said the shudders could proceed. “This is a seismic tremor arrangement,” she said at a question and answer session. “It will be continuous.”

“Each seismic tremor makes another quake more probable,” she included, saying there was a 10% possibility of a comparative or significantly bigger shudder following in the following week.

Be that as it may, Dr Jones said it was not likely the tremor would trigger stuns on other separation points.
