California earthquake created a massive crack in the Earth visible in satellite images

CNN)The 7.1 magnitude earthquake that shook California on Friday also ripped open a fissure.
When the shaking started at 8:19 p.m., many scrambled for cover. It was the second strong earthquake to hit the area in less than 48 hours.
The immediate damage it caused was very clear. Stores had broken bottles and exploded cans littering their floors and other items that had been hanging on walls had toppled over.
As the sun rose the next day, it also became clear that the area's topography had changed.
Satellite images provided to CNN by Planet Labs, Inc. show a crack has formed in the area close to the epicenter.
This photo was taken on 178 SW of Trona. The road is now closed for repairs.
