VIDEO: 7.1 Quake shakes Southern California Friday night

Southern California residents were rattled by a large earthquake Friday night, as a magnitude 7.1 quake struck in Kern County.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the quake was centered  10 and a half miles from Ridgecrest, and hit at 8:19 p.m., California time.

Those same officials re-classified Thursday’s quake as a ‘foreshock,’ as the magnitude of Friday’s event surpassed the initial event.

CNN interviewed several residents of Ridgecrest, who shared that immediately following the quake, smoke then fire rose from a previously-damaged mobile home park.  Another resident said her home and the neighborhood continued to roll for several minutes after the temblor.

The quake was again felt as far away as Los Angeles, where Dodgers fans cheered while Dodger stadium rolled with the quake; meanwhile in Las Vegas, cameras caught fans watching a NBA summer league game evacuating the venue after the quake hit.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) officials reported a large earthquake in Southern California, roughly halfway between Bakersfield and Las Vegas.

The quake, initially reported to be a magnitude 6.6, has since been reclassified as a 6.4 magnitude quake, struck Thursday morning and was felt in parts of Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas metro areas.

Communities closer to the quake’s epicenter are starting to report in varying amounts of damage.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting damage and fires in Kern County, near the quake’s epicenter.

The quake struck at 10:33 Pacific Daylight Time, and USGS officials say it is the strongest quake to hit the area since 1999.

  • I have a friend in the LA Sheriff’s Office, and he said they felt it there too.

  • Hopefully Alberto Velarde the psycho moves back to Commiefornia in time for the big one. He loves Commiefornia so much that they kicked him out of the state 10 years ago.

    • Wouldn’t it be awesome if Nancy Piglosi, Adam the Schitt Schift, Swallowell and Alberto were all there when Commiefornia falls into the ocean? 🙂

      • Can’t happen soon enough. BTW – Add Maxine Waters and Gavin Newsome.

  • This certainly has to be the joke of all jokes! first Mikey: I have a friend in the LA Sheriff’s Office! HA HA HA HA must be in the K-9 section,the dog that sniffed you out for drugs,then the deputy busted you with 10 grams of meth!

    Then Fero said: Hopefully Alberto Velarde THE GREAT LEADER! and My Beat Down MASTER! don’t live in the Bay Area No MO! Quakes make me poop and pee in my underwear!

    Been there done that Fero, Quakes are good for California! it scares the hell out of republicans and they exodus from the Great Golden State in a hurry.

    Unfortunately they might end up in El Paso or somewhere else in Texass. What brought you to El Paso?
    Bet after you left jail in Mobil Alabama you and Mad Mike were given a one way bus fare ticked to Texas!
    And after being squatters living under an overpass bridge in the upper valley! you both purse snatched enough credits cards and money. To move to a trailer park in Chaparral New Mexico, it’s the last trailer on a dead end dirt road with no water/gas,electricity and sewer service.
    But you do have cesspool service to take baths in.

    Trump is going to prison, Ha! Ha! Ha Ha! Ha…….
    I happen to live RENT FREE in Fero’s Section 8 Mind!

    And the best part is that ‘IT” fero can never EVICT ME! as it licks the fussy end the lollipop ‘IT’ found in the dumpster.

    • It is too easy to rope that dope Alberto. He’s too chicken to go back to Commiefornia. LMAO. The so called good quakes made HIM leave Commiefornia. The moron is still trolling and posting at KKKVIA at 2-3 am. Bad insomnia from being a doper. Obviously a chronic crack or meth head. Can’t stay away from KVIA. He gets soooo beat down. He is sooooo lonely. Trump lives in his head 24/7. Happy TDS! Trump 2020.

    • Alberto for prison 2019!

    • Looking forward to the big quake, to tin the commie herd

  • Fero fero my little coward pissy fero, I dominate this peon Fero like he was my bitch!I live rent free inside his section eight mind. As Fero always has me in his mind! always thinking about me and worrying if I’m ever going back to California to live.

    No Fero I shall not return back to the Golden State even though I would like to vacation there someday. but not to live. I was BLESSED! to have gotten to live in San Francisco for 23 good long years!
    They don’t like republicans in San Francisco so you would never make it there even if you took Mad Mike to go there. You couldn’t afford it let alone live there.

    As soon as the locals would find out that you both are white nationalist,they would automatically murder you,and you’d be found. 6 weeks later floating face down between pier 15 and pier 16, as your bodies would be all bloated,decomposing and loaded with barnacle’s and sea worms. BTW! I was in the October 17 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, It was on a hot Tuesday at 5:02 pm, I was on my way to go see the World Series.

    Something that you and mad Mike would have a heart attack out of pure fear! NOT ME! I was brave and calm. I got use to them Earthquakes but they are not to be taken likely.
    I figure that I would work just enough to retire and come back home and enjoy my retirement, and that is what I am doing now. So you and mad Mike are nothing but jokers to me.

    I get a kick because you both are not even from El Paso, you both are drifters from down south,and I’m sure that you both use the public library to use their free computers. That is the way that you communicate with me.

    I haven’t being on the KVIA forum in a while, so obviously you are very paranoid that you think that I’m still posting there. And I don’t care what you think, I know that I do scare the shit out of you.
    And about Donald Trump! all I can say that everyday is something different! It’s made time go by fast for me.
    And I am not worried about him! I just can’t wait to see him march off to prison.
    Did you see what happened to his buddy Jeffery Epstein in New York yesterday? You know that Epstein is one of Donald Trump’s close friends.
    Also George Nader,another one of Donald Trump’s good buddies, and soon Donald Trump will get indicted,arrested and end up in prison.

    Do some research fool, you think that Fox News is cool and real! you got a lot of catching up to do!
    You are on the losing side of American history. That is another beat down from me to you Fero.
    You ain’t no man! you are nothing but a clown and a coward who thinks he’s a goat.

    As for crack and meth! do you use them both together! I bet that you do, and mad mike shoots up his drugs,that is why he is always mad. You both should try something kinky together, you probably already have, you dirty perverts!

    Hasta La Vista MAGGOT Fero!
    you going down boy!!!!

    • If it walks like Alberto posting at KKKVIA, talks like Alberto posting at KKKVIA, and looks like Alberto posting at KKKVIA then it’s dumbass Alberto still posting at KKKVIA. Obviously he is a delusional chronic liar. Psycho Alberto gets 5 Pinocchios.

      BTW – Happy TDS.


    • I enjoy that this publication allows your racist rants. Everyone that reads your crap, becomes a republican. You and your stupid racist, psychotic rants are the best Republican ads ever.

      • On top of that Alberto Velarde is a bigot, misogynist, xenophobe, homophobe, islamaphobe, pervert, child molester, dopehead and unequivocally a total moron.

        Along with all the leftist Communists running for Democrat nominee for POTUS Alberto is clearly the poster child for Trump getting reelected.

        TRUMP 2020!

    • Dumbass Alberto getting his fake news from MSNBC and CNN as usual. Watches Rachel Madcow. On the Epstein matter moron Trump banned Epstein from Mar a Lago for his antics with underage girls. Reported in the left leaning WaPo. Epstein was a BIG democrat benefactor. Bill Clinton flew 26 times on Epstein’s Lolita Express jet to his private island (Orgy Island). At least 5 of those trips were without any secret service escort. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.

      Libtards are grasping for straws.

      TRUMP 2020!

      • Wouldn’t it be interesting if Epstein is what finally brings down the Clinton Criminal Cartel?

  • If Fero and Mad Mike would stop abusing crack cocaine and crystal meth and put an end to their drug addiction,they could join a circus. And move on with their miserable lives and move out of El Paso for good,never to return.
    Fero is the George Nader of El Paso while Mad Mike is the Jeffrey Epstein wannabe,except he traffics used blow up dolls.Claiming that he recycles them.
    These are true El Paso drifters that relocated here because they TB,STD’S and other contagious disease because of their drug addiction habits.

    Mikey thinks that he has a strong following from the KKKVIA commenting forum of bigot stooges.
    As Fedro claims to be a goat while high on crack or meth.

    They are deplorable as hell that even their former home towns refused to take them back!
    as these idiots post serious danger to El Paso’s children.
    They are both pedophiles for young boys 5 years or younger.

    • It will be so enjoyable seeing you led out of your hovel of an apartment in cuffs.

      • Alberto the doper.

        Alberto for prison 2019!

  • Mad Mike and Fero you dumb ass CRACKHEADS! did you at least change the copper brillo from your glass crack pipes? I bet not. It’s the burnt out crack that is messing you LOCAS UP! and it’s talking to Y’ALL inside your knuckle head minds.
    OK cupcakes I’m done with you for now!

    • You will be in prison in 2020
