MUST SEE: California gets ROCKED by major earthquake on Fourth of July

Stay safe, California!

While the President’s “Salute to America” celebration was battling inclement weather that threatened to cancel the “biggest ever” fireworks show, Californians are suffering from a major natural disaster.

In southern California a massive, 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck, causing damage to roads and buildings.

Stores were also socked by the shaking, sending the celebratory suds crashing to the floor.

Some even took a moment to chide CNN for their shoddy reporting on the quake, which is the most powerful that the region has seen in decades.

One newsman reported that the quake had a unique feel to it.

One Twitter user even lamented that the movie Independence Day began with an earthquake that turned out to be an alien invasion…

Scarier still; the shaking could be far from over.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist and founder of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science & Society, said it was the strongest quake to hit the state in 20 years. A magnitude 4.0 quake reported about half an hour before the 6.4 was a foreshock, she said.

“It’s certain that this area will be shaken a lot today,” Jones said at a news briefing. “Some of those aftershocks might exceed magnitude 5.”

Stay safe, California!
