Southern California has been hit by a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, just two days after a tremor measuring 6.4.
The latest quake was measured 18 miles east of the city of Ridgecrest in California, at around 8.30pm local time (4.30am BST).
But there are reports of it being felt as far away as Las Vegas and even Mexico, covering an area with a population of around 20 million people.
There have been multiple posts on social media from people who clearly felt the quake themselves, describing it as “intense” and “scary”.
Attendees reported tremors being felt at a Shawn Mendez concert at the Staples Arena in downtown Los Angeles.
Disneyland was forced to temporarily halt rides as terrified visitors felt the ground violently shake during the quake.
