This latest series of quakes comes days after a powerful 7.1 earthquake struck southern California and caused extensive surface ruptures. Damages from said earthquake caused a massive fissure across the Little Lake fault zone near California's Highway 178. At least 159 aftershocks of magnitude 2.5 or greater were recorded afterward.
