Any further updates ? I have heard both end of the spectrum. Are there multiple fires, collapses etc? Can we expect requests for aid from outside the region ?

Ok, Thanks for the Info.


Thanks for the freqs, I’ll tune in.


It sounds like lots of structural damage. I haven’t heard any collapses. There are less than 5 fires. KRN is running lots of gas and water leaks.

At this time, no reports on building collapses. Two single family structure fires, now under control. Evacuation of Ridgecrest hospital ER. Majority of incidents are commercial fire alarms, gas leaks and other hazardous conditions.

Depending on are ability to make call backs (being 4th of July) and staffing our reserve engines, I wouldn’t expect to see any out of area request at this time.

China Lake base did put out emergency notice to KRN ECC at 12:10 hours that they anticipated an additional large earthquake to occur relatively soon, but nothing yet.
