Another Big Brother earthquake has taken place. On the evening of July 5, the earth began shaking again in California. The image above shows the BB21 cast reacting to it on the live feeds.
Initial reports state that a 7.1 magnitude earthquake has struck Southern California. This quake was also centered near Ridgecrest, which is where the Fourth of July earthquake took place.
The quake from July 4 was reported to be at a 6.4 magnitude, but it took place away from population centers. No damage was reported, even though it was felt across many states.
July 5 Big Brother earthquake
This is being called the biggest earthquake to hit the region in more than two decades. Initially, there wasn’t a big reaction from people, as a baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres continued. But L.A. is also a long way from the epicenter of the quake.

The damage reports are still coming in from Southern California and the surrounding areas. The Las Vegas Summer League games being played this evening had play suspended for the night and there are several fires that have broken out in California.
What the local authorities have stated is that these earthquakes are now a “sequence” event and that it could mean a stronger earthquake could still be coming.
