An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.6 struck the Ridgecrest area early Tuesday morning.
The temblor hit at 6:11 a.m. about 9 miles north-northeast of Ridgecrest, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
The area was struck by a powerful 6.4 earthquake on the Fourth of July that prompted officials to declare a state of emergency.
Tuesday’s event caused moderate shaking in Trona, with light shaking reported as far away as Bakersfield, according to the U.S.G.S.
