Nevada death may be linked to California quake

Nevada death may be linked to California quake”

Governor Gavin Newsom requested a Presidential Emergency Declaration for Direct Federal Assistance on July 5 after a 7.1-magnitude quake rattled the towns of Ridgecrest and Trona last week.

Deputies with the Nye County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a property at the crossroads of Becky Ln. and East Churchill Rd.in Pahrump at around 1 p.m. Tuesday over reports of a "man beneath a vehicle".

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) says the quake occurred at a depth of about 8 kilometres, and was the result of strike-slip faulting (plates grinding against each other in a roughly horizontal fashion) at a juncture of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates known as the Eastern California shear zone. It's unclear when personnel and their families will be able to return.

Water and gas service have been restored at the base, but engineers are ensuring buildings are safe to enter.

One person suffered a minor foot injury. Officials have estimated the damage to California may exceed $100 million.

It could be several more days before water service is restored to the tiny town of Trona, where officials trucked in portable toilets and showers.

In addition to mapping the earthquakes, NASA's Earth Science Disasters Program is working with the California Earthquake Clearinghouse to coordinate response efforts with the California Air National Guard, the USGS and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Scientists are working closely with NASA's Earth Science Disasters Program (as well as many other partners that include the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to figure out how best to respond to the quake, JPL added.

The large quakes were followed by thousands of smaller aftershocks. The US Geological Survey said it had recorded 5,714 aftershocks over magnitude 2 over the past week.
