The strong shaking was originally registered as a 6.0-magnitude quake. It has since been downgraded to the 5.8.

According to the US Geological Survey, the quake hit a little after 10:30 a.m. PST.

The epicenter was in the mostly dry Owens Lake bed, about 10 miles south-southeast of Lone Pine, near the center of the Owens Valley and the site of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power water facilities.

The M5.8 earthquake was followed by at least 15 aftershocks ranging between M2.1 and M4.6.

The temblor was felt throughout Central California and parts of Southern California. Some as far away as the Bay Area felt shaking from the temblor.

The quake struck in the same location as a magnitude 4.6 temblor two nights ago.

The rumblings and earthquake booms were reported by over 10,000 on the USGS homepage:

Felt like someone was shaking the house quickly. There was a rumbling sound in my house like a military jet breaks the sound barrier

At first we thought it was some type of construction, our mugs all started clinking together and there was a loud shaking sound.

I heard a deep rumbling sound a few seconds before the shaking started. Then my house shook hard and blinds were swinging

Second time ive ever been awake during a quake. It was light to weak and only lasted about five seconds but it was pretty neat . I thought it might have been the san andreas fault but i guess not.

Washing clothes,loud bang & jolt git up to check washer thought of balance min(?) Later got notification of quake

I felt shaking in my office/swivel chair, heard “cracking” sounds in wall as well as the common quiet, dull rumble.

  1. CAL-ILL-FORNIA New coronavirus cases in California rise 70 PERCENT in just two days as Gov. Newsom considers reinstating strict rules. In a Wednesday press conference, the governor said that the state reported the number of new COVID-19 cases as 4,230 on Sunday and 7,149 on Tuesday.

    That’s an alarming increase of 69 percent jump in newly diagnosed cases in a short time span.

    “We’ve seen a lot of those numbers are reflected in increases in the Bay Area,” Newsom said.

    “That’s part of the state that’s moved last into this new phase. They have moved more slowly and now have experienced an increase in the last number of days. It’s Alameda, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo.”

    The governor acknowledged that more testing has contributed to higher cases.

    “That’s absolutely true. We not only had a record number of positive cases yesterday … we also had a record number of tests,” Newsom said.
