San Bernardino County Fire Department reported damage to building as a result of the earthquake that struck southern areas of the US state of California for the second time this week.
On Friday night, the NBA Summer League game between the New York Knicks and the New Orleans Pelicans was suspended due to the earthquake.
"The building shook side to side, it was crazy," Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley said as quoted by Forbes.
