Officials investigating possible first fatality from Ridgecrest quake

Could Massive So Cal Earthquakes Trigger the'Big One on the San Andreas Fault

"This is what we believe is an earthquake-related death", said Sgt. Adam Tippetts of the Nye County Sheriff's office.

Once on scene they located the 56-year-old deceased man underneath the vehicle.

'The Nye County Sheriff's investigation reveals that this death may be the result of the vehicle falling off the jacks on July 4 during the natural disaster'.

The man's name wasn't immediately released.

Officers believe the man was working underneath the vehicle when it fell on him during the July 4 natural disaster. The two earthquakes bore the magnitude of 6.4 and 7.1 on the Richter scale respectively. It's unclear when personnel and their families will be able to return. It could be several more days before water service is restored to the tiny town of Trona, where officials trucked in portable toilets and showers.

Two strong quakes - a 6.4 and a 7.1 - struck Thursday and Friday near Ridgecrest, just outside the 1.2-million-acre base in the Mojave Desert.

Experts said the recent quakes did not happen along the San Andreas Fault and are unlikely to affect it.

One person sustained a minor foot injury.

The USGS said the aftershocks will likely taper off, and the probability of another big quake will decrease.

Around 1,289 of those were over magnitude 2.5 - strong enough to be felt - and 28 over 4.5, nearly violent enough to damage buildings.

It was part of a sequence of earthquakes that began about a week earlier, although the wave did not make its presence known until a 6.4-magnitude quake on July 4.
