Another earthquake struck Southern California on Friday night that was felt all the way from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. Seismologists said the latest quake was 7.1 on the Richter scale and was 10 times stronger than the earthquake on Friday. It did not seem to affect the players at the Dodgers and Padres game as they continued play throughout the quake but everyone else in Dodgers Stadium seemed to notice.
The earthquake occurred at approximately 8:20 p.m. PT northeast of Ridgecrest, Calif., and had a preliminary magnitude of up to 7.1, according to multiple reports. Dodger Stadium shook as a result, and those in the area could reportedly see the upper decks and foul poles shaking. Although they let this game play through the NBA had to stop a summer league game in Las Vegas because of the severity of the quake.
