For their july weekend was not supposed to be like this first there's a 6.4 magnitude earthquake on the 4th of july we're just a few miles from the epicenter of that quake here where i'm standing and then that turned out to be a foreshock essentially a prelude to what was a 7.1 magnitude earthquake the came the very next day that one releasing 11 times the energy.

>>of the first one and now we've been feeling the aftershocks, thousands of small ones at this point as residents here are still trying to recover.
