The temblor was felt throughout Riverside and Los Angeles counties.
“For the last week we’ve been having these aftershocks, and I feel like they’re getting a little bit more frequent and then of course this was one was bigger than what we’ve had,” Bridgette Cunningham, a Trona resident, said. “So, it is a little bit scary, especially because July is next month.”
Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones said in a tweet that the temblor was at the very southern end of the aftershock zone.READ MORE: Metrolink's Ventura County Line Will Offer Saturday Service Starting May 29

Yes, an earthquake. A M5.5 at the very southern end of the 2019 Ridgecrest aftershock zone. This is a large late aftershock – do you remember that I said these are common?
