A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Little Antelope Valley, California near the Nevada border on July 8, 2021 at 3:49pm local time (July 8 at 22:49 UTC). Seismic instruments indicate the earthquake originated at a depth of 6 miles (9.8 kilometers).
The earthquake struck about 20 miles southwest of Smith Valley, NV. Perceived shaking for the quake was very strong. The event was widely felt, with close to 15,000 "Did You Feel It?" reports thus far submitted.
USGS scientists expect that this event will trigger aftershocks, but these will decrease in frequency over time. See the aftershock forecast for details.
Yellow alert for economic losses. Some damage is possible and the impact should be relatively localized. Estimated economic losses are less than 1% of GDP of the United States. Past events with this alert level have required a local or regional level response.

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Insurance Department is taking a proactive step to protect Oklahomans who buy earthquake insurance. Today the Department released a bulletin to property and casualty insurance companies to address important issues surrounding earthquake insurance.
“We want to make sure everyone is clear on earthquake insurance,” said Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak. “Oklahomans need to know what they are buying.

A swarm of hundreds of earthquakes in Nevada has intensified recently, prompting experts to warn people to be ready in case larger ones hit.
Starting in July, some 750 earthquakes, mostly magnitude 2.0 to 3.0, have struck a corner of the Nevada desert near the Oregon border, according to several reports. Scientists believe groundwater is slowly percolating along the faults and building up pressure, making movement on the faults much easier, the Los Angeles Times reported.
