Ridgecrest Six Months Since “The Big One” Still Feeling Aftershocks

Ridgecrest Six Months Since

Skylar Voight, Staff Writer

All the shelves in the Ridgecrest stores have been restocked and the cracks on Highway 178 where the earth’s surface has split have been fixed. Ridgecrest residents have noticed the star on B-Mountain this holiday was not lit up, as it is every holiday before. The earthquake damaged it. The electrical system has been damaged and has yet to be fixed. The thousands upon thousands of aftershocks that continue to impact our town, gives us daily reminders of our traumatic July 4th and 5th when the major earthquakes hit.
