Earthquake -- Lone Pine / Owens Valley 6-24-2020 #57418 06/24/2020 5:52 PM

Just felt it, in Fresno, mild shaking. But the USGS Real-Time Interactive Earthquake map initially shows 5.8, centered in the middle of the Owens Lake (dry) lake bed. 10:40 AM, Pacific Daylight Time.

That's a big one! I hope people in Lone Pine are ok.

The Owens Lake bed is deep sediments -- the surface there was likely rolling like the ocean. I am hopeful Whitney Portal did not get hit too badly, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Whitney Portal Road is covered with lots of rocks coming down from above.

Some updates here at the Inyo Sheriff's Facebook

Inyo SAR got sent to check for injured hikers, found none. There was significant continued rockfall through the afternoon between Lone Pine Lake and Outpost Camp, some close to reaching the trail.

Everyone I heard from had theirs canceled and nothing was coming through - ie. booked bu then canceled afterward.

Did you read the PR that has it additionally closed now due to the slides?

Keep calling Inyo, you'll get through eventually.
