In California, the second earthquake occurred in two days. One of them is the strongest in the state in 20 years.

Because of the aftershocks in the NBA could not play a few matches, and in Disneyland stopped the rides.

On the night of July 6, an earthquake of 7.1 magnitude occurred in southern California . This is the second series of aftershocks in the state in recent days – last, a magnitude of 6.4 points, registered on July 4.

According to CNN, the new earthquake lasted longer – just under a minute. The town of Ridzhkrest suffered most of all, where forest fires began, and several people were injured. But shocks were felt in other cities, for example, in Los Angeles, as well as in the neighboring state of Nevada.

During the earthquake in Las Vegas, the NBA summer league took place: the association eventually canceled several games. They also evacuated all visitors to Disneyland – at the time of the jolts the rides stopped.

Reuters notes that the July 6 earthquake was the strongest in the state since 1999.
