Another powerful earthquake has struck California, this time coming in at a magnitude-7.1 just before 8:30 p.m.
The United States Geological Survey says the quake struck 17-kilometres from Ridgecrest California — near the same spot the magnitude-6.4 hit Thursday.
Media outlets such as the LA Times report that it caused minor injuries and some damage around the epicenter.
First responders are combing through the city, and say there are multiple calls for ambulance services.

The quake is not related to Wednesday’s quake and aftershocks, that took place north of Vancouver Island.
