Strong magnitude 6 quake strikes in Antelope Valley near California-Nevada border, no significant damage reported

Early morning on 8 July 2021, a strong magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Little Antelope Valley, California at 3:49pm local time (July 8 at 22:49 UTC). The quake was registered at shallow depth of around 6 miles (9.8 kilometers) only.
The epicenter was about 20 miles southwest of Smith Valley, NV. Perceived shaking for the quake was very strong near the epicenter and light shaking could be felt in up to hundreds of miles distance, including the SF Bay area and Las Vegas. Within minutes, hundreds of users sent reports of shaking to our monitoring service. So far, USGS has received more than 20,000 reports for this quake.

There were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries, fortunately. Near the epicenter, things fell off shelves, windows were broken, weak walls and some roofs were damaged. Rockfalls occurred on highways near mountain slopes, with rocks hitting cars. According to local news, people were not injured.

The shaking lasted for 30 seconds or more, and people ran out of buildings.

Initial report of magnitude 4.8
Initial calculations had indicated two earthquakes striking 25 seconds but 100 miles (161 kilometers) apart. After a review, USGS removed the magnitude 4.8 quake in Farmington, about five miles (8 km) southeast of Stockton. The uncertainty was caused by the remote location, which had fewer seismic instruments, Austin Elliott, a USGS geologist, explained to ABC news: “The system underestimated the original magnitude of that event and estimated a location that was slightly off from the true location,” he said.
As the seismic waves moved across the state, other stations misinterpreted them as a separate quake because ”they arrived at an unexpected time," Elliott said.
Elliott also said earthquakes commonly happen along this fault. He cited a magnitude 5.8 earthquake that rattled the Eastern Sierra town of Lone Pine last month and sent boulders crashing down Mt. Whitney.

Aftershocks
Less than a minute later, a strong aftershock of magnitude 5.2 occurred in the area and nearly 100 smaller aftershocks occurred during the 8 hours since the quake, reaching magnitudes of up to 4.6. These will continue in the near future, but decrease with time.

Tectonic information
The quake occurred as the result of normal faulting in the shallow crust of the North America plate. Preliminary focal mechanism solutions for the event, which describe the style of faulting in an earthquake, indicate slip likely occurred on a moderately dipping fault striking roughly north-south. This motion is consistent with east-west oriented extension that is common in Nevada and eastern California. This earthquake occurred along the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada, a major physiographic boundary along the California-Nevada border.

Tectonically, this event occurred at the margin of the stable Sierra Nevada microplate and the Walker Lane, a zone of distributed shear. The Sierra Nevada microplate moves at about 12 mm/yr to the northwest relative to the North American plate. The Sierra Nevada microplate is a part of the broader Pacific-North America plate boundary system of California, and roughly 25% of the 5 cm/yr total plate boundary motion occurs east of the Sierra Nevada. Earthquakes in the vicinity of the July 8 earthquake include both normal faulting earthquakes and strike-slip earthquakes.

In the past 100 years, 33 earthquakes of M5+ or larger have occurred within 100 km of the July 8 earthquake. The largest of these were a M6.1 earthquake 36 km to the northwest in September 1994 and a M6.1 earthquake 63 km to the north in June 1933.

Significant 6.0 quake hits near South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County, California, USA
6.0 quake Antelope Valley, CA, 8 Jul 3:49 pm (GMT -7)
6.0 quake Antelope Valley, CA, 8 Jul 3:49 pm (GMT -7)
Just 8 hours ago, a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck near South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County, California, USA. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Thursday 8 July 2021 at 3:49 pm local time, at a very shallow depth of 4.7 miles below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) which listed the quake at magnitude 6.0 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been felt by everybody in the area of the epicenter. In those areas, dangerous ground shaking occurred with the potential to inflict moderate to heavy damage to buildings and other infrastructure.
Towns or cities where the quake likely caused strong ground shaking include
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Topaz Ranch Estates (pop. 1,500) located 16 miles from the epicenter, and Smith Valley (pop. 1,600) 21 miles away.
In Gardnerville Ranchos (pop. 11,300) located 29 miles from the epicenter, Gardnerville (pop. 5,700) 33 miles away, South Lake Tahoe (pop. 21,700) 39 miles away, Sparks (pop. 96,100) 72 miles away, and Reno (pop. 241,400) 73 miles away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Folsom (pop. 76,400) located 91 miles from the epicenter.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you're in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.

We truly love working to bring you the latest volcano and earthquake data from around the world. Maintaining our website and our free apps does require, however, considerable time and resources.
We need financing to increase hard- and software capacity as well as support our editor team. We're aiming to achieve uninterrupted service wherever an earthquake or volcano eruption unfolds, and your donations can make it happen! Every donation will be highly appreciated. If you find the information useful and would like to support our team in integrating further features, write great content, and in upgrading our soft- and hardware, please make a donation (PayPal or Online credit card payment).

Planned features:
  • Improved multilanguage support
  • Tsunami alerts
