Transcript for Aftershocks rock California after 2 major earthquakes
So fun. Okay, we'll turn to the fallout from those earthquakes that shook southern California this weekend. Two major quake, thousands of aftershocks have the region on edge and Marcus Moore is in ridgecrest, California, with the latest. Good morning, Marcus. Reporter: George, good morning. We are feeling aftershocks this morning as residents here recover from back-to-back earthquakes including some who are having to start over. The family who lived in this house burned in the aftermath of Friday's earthquake. This morning, California is a state on edge. Hit by the strongest earthquakes in 20 years sparking fires, causing thousands to lose power and creating uncertainty in businesses and homes across the golden state. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Reporter: With thousands of aftershocks rattling the region over the weekend, many now wondering is the worst yet to come? We all I think have a unique role and responsibility to prepare individually to be prepared for the next earthquake of magnitude even greater than 7.1. Reporter: The one-two punch began on July 4th in ridgecrest, 120 miles from Los Angeles. The first quake registering a 6.4 magnitude. A day later a second quake registering 7.1. Watch this woman unable to get up and seek safety. And this 2-year-old dangerously close to a swaying trailer. Get up get up. Reporter: The shaking felt at the Los Angeles dodgers game. How are they continuing to play baseball? Reporter: To give you an idea how powerful it was, look at this. The ground is split and there is a gash in the Earth and when the violent shaking starts it shifted the ground and left a crack that stretches for as far as the eye can see through the California desert. Miraculously no lives lost and experts say the number of aftershocks is now dropping. It is dropping off relatively quickly. The number of earthquakes that we're seeing here on Sunday is substantially below what we were seeing on Saturday. Reporter: We felt a strong jolt about an hour ago and Dr. Jones points out that the area will likely have raniere earthquake every hour or two and then it will begin to go down to daily and weekly. But there is still a 3% chance they could see a stronger earthquake in the coming days, Michael. Thank you, Marcus. We move to the latest on the battle over the border.
