California earthquakes: First death apparently linked to California earthquakes reported

Could Massive So Cal Earthquakes Trigger the'Big One on the San Andreas Fault

Last week's 7.1-magnitude natural disaster in California ripped open a fissure that is visible from space.

The 56-year-old man was found pinned beneath his Jeep on Tuesday about 100-miles from the earthquake's epicenter near Ridgecrest, California.

It's part of a sequence of earthquakes that began rippling across the region last week and was preceded, less than 36 hours earlier, by a magnitude 6.4 foreshock on July 4.

It is believed the man was working on the Jeep, which apparently fell off of its jacks, Tippetts said.

His name wasn't immediately released.

Before-and-after imagery captured by Planet Labs Inc. on July 4 and 6, respectively, shows a gash appearing in the ground roughly 16km northeast of Ridgecrest, California, pretty much exactly above the location of the magnitude 7.1 quake. Local authorities reported multiple fires, damage to buildings, roads and gas lines, TIME reported. The Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake military base nearby remains closed to non-essential personnel as damage assessments continue following last week's powerful earthquakes in the area. It's unclear when personnel and their families will be able to return.

"Everything came off the walls".

Experts said the recent quakes did not happen along the San Andreas Fault and are unlikely to affect it. Some personnel were evacuated to the naval base in Ventura County.

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

On Monday, US President Donald Trump approved a request by California Governor Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency, unlocking extra funds.

Scientists are working closely with NASA's Earth Science Disasters Program (as well as many other partners that include the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to figure out how best to respond to the quake, JPL added.
