Minutes ago, two earthquakes of 3.1-magnitude and 3.2-magnitude struck Inyo County, 38 miles north of Ridgecrest, Kern County, California, USA, at a shallow depth of 5km and 6km respectively. The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), listed it as a magnitude 3.1 and 3.2 respectively.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquakes might be revised later on as seismologists review their data. Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Olancha (pop. 190) located 11 miles from the epicenter.
