Cleanup is ongoing in Southern California following two powerful earthquakes that centered around Ridgecrest, about 150 miles northeast of Los Angeles. A magnitude 6.4 quake, which has been described as a "foreshock," hit on the Fourth of July while a 7.1 earthquake hit Friday night. Few stores are open in the area as some residents are without basic essentials and are having a hard time finding them. In the nearby town of Trona, bricks and cinderblocks cover the ground surrounding standing structures. Volunteers are dropping off water at Trona High School after a widespread water outage. Crews are encouraging anyone to drive up and take what they need.
