Just as Californians were out celebrating July 4th with parades and firing up grills for barbecues, the largest earthquake in three decades rocked the southern part of the state, registered at 6.4 magnitude.

The quake lasted for about 30 seconds centered in the San Bernadino area's Searles Valley, but also could be felt on Los Angeles, about 100 miles away, and as far away as Las Vegas. According to the LA Times

The 10:33 a.m. quake was centered in the Searles Valley, a remote area of San Bernardino County about 100 miles from Los Angeles.

The quake was the largest in Southern California since the 1994 6.6 Northridge quake, which killed dozens and caused billions of dollars in damage. But the Northridge quake hit in the center of a populated area, while Thursday’s quake was located far from the metropolitan Los Angeles area.

Local reports from the L.A. area suggest it was "slow and steady" and reports of major home damage have emerged within the direct vicinity of the earthquake's center.

The aftershocks which reached the LA metropolitan area were felt by people for an extended time but were not reported as violent or causing severe damage to homes.

However, the emergency lines were flooded. “We are very much aware of the significant earthquake that just occurred in Southern California. Please DO NOT call 9-1-1 unless there are injuries or other dangerous conditions. Don't call for questions please,” the LAPD said in a statement.

Local reports say over 30 aftershocks were felt across southern California in the aftermath. 

According to CBS Los Angeles

The earthquake was followed by multiple aftershocks in the Ridgecrest and Searles Valley areas, measuring anywhere from magnitude 2.9 to 4.2.

The quake was felt all across the Southland, as far south as Orange County, according to USGS.

According to earthquake expert Dr. Lucy Jones, CalTech received a 48 second warning that the quake was coming, she said at a news conference in Pasadena.
