The city of Ridgecrest, California was hit by the region’s strongest earthquake in 20 years on Thursday. And while the area recovers from injuries, fires, and damaged homes caused by the 6.4 magnitude quake, officials fear that a second, stronger earthquake could strike in the coming days. Caltech seismologist Lucy Jones says the area should expect aftershocks to continue for some time. “There is about a 1 in 20 chance that this location will be having an even bigger earthquake within the next few days,” Jones said.
