6.8R in Southern California, the second in in two days.

A 6.8R earthquake has been reported even stronger than the one yesterday and at the same location of the epicenterin Southern California.  This larger event felt by more powerful than the previous one and as we can see from the global calendar we were expecting this to be.
The earthquake occurred 31 miles from California City, 62 miles from Barstow, and 64 miles from Rosamond, Calif.. This has followed by a flury of aftershocks including a 5.5R.

In the past 10 days, there have been 117 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater centered nearby. The jolt comes two days after the July Fourth magnitude 6.4 earthquake that rattled the region. The earthquake occurred at a shallow depth.
The regional stress points for today can be seen below as produced by our software. The one encircled below is nearly spot on the epicenter.
