A 7.1 magnitude earthquake rocked Southern California late Friday, a day after the region experienced powerful quakes that ignited fires and raised concerns about even more powerful jolts.
The epicenter of Friday's quake was 11 miles north-northeast of Ridgecrest, California and could be felt in cities including Phoenix, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and Las Vegas, according to the Associated Press.
Here's what we know about the latest major earthquake to hit Southern California:
Were injuries or damage reported?
Kern County spokeswoman Megan Person said officials were responding to multiple reports of injuries and fires. Power outages were reported in and around Ridgecrest and the nearby community of Trona was without power.

“We do know there were a number of injuries, but most of them I would characterize in the minor to moderate level. And no report of any fatalities," CalOES director Mark Ghilarducci said Saturday morning. "I think we’re very lucky there and happy they weren’t any worse."
Were any roads or buildings damaged?
As of Saturday morning, all roads are now open, according to David Kim, secretary of the California Department of Transportation. State Route 178 sustained significant damage, which CalTrans crews worked through the night to repair. Rock slides were also cleared on State Routes 178, 190 and 192.
Kim also said that all bridges have been inspected and fully cleared for safety.
The Kern County Fire Department reported it responded to two structure fires Friday evening. An additional structure fire was reported Saturday morning, which was a complete loss.

At the worst of the incident, more than 2,000 Ridgecrest homes were without power as was the nearby community of Trona.
Reports of power outages and road damage were coming in from numerous communities across Southern California.
San Bernardino County Fire tweeted that it was receiving 911 calls with callers describing cracked foundations and shifted homes.
Response from President Trump?
California Gov. Gavin Newsom says President Donald Trump has called him and expressed commitment to helping California recover from two earthquakes that hit the state in as many days.
The Democratic governor said Saturday “there’s no question we don’t agree on everything, but one area where there’s no politics, where we work extremely well together, is our response to emergencies.”
“He’s committed in the long haul, the long run, to help support the rebuilding efforts,” Newsom said of Trump.
Are giant aftershocks expected?
The Ridgecrest area had several Magnitude 5+'s in the area this week. Seismologist Lucy Jones tweeted Thursday that there would be more to come.
Jones also tweeted Friday night’s earthquake was part of the same sequence and that more quakes are possible.
Like any quake, today's M7.1 has a 1 in 20 of being followed by something even bigger. Smaller quakes - M5s are likely and a M6 is quite possible.— Dr. Lucy Jones (@DrLucyJones) July 6, 2019
