California experienced its largest tremor in years Thursday as a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck a remote region in the southeastern part of the state. The U.S. Geological Survey pinpointed the epicenter near Ridgecrest, in a remote region about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles between the Sequoia National Forest and the Mojave Desert. The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted that “at this time, there are not any reports of serious damage to City infrastructure, nor have any injuries been reported” in the city.
Following a 7.6 magnitude earthquake off the coast of New Caledonia on Wednesday a tsunami warning was issued for the Pacific island. No damage or injury has been reported according to officials. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center initially observed some tsunami waves along the coast but have since lifted the tsunami warning.
