LOS ANGELES, July 12 (Reuters) – A magnitude 4.9 aftershock struck on Friday roughly 5 miles east of the remote California town of Ridgecrest, which was rocked by a pair of major earthquakes over the past week, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

There were no reports of damage or injuries in Friday’s temblor, which occurred at 6:11 a.m. Pacific time, one of thousands of aftershocks felt since a magnitude 6.4 earthquake shook Ridgecrest on July 4, followed by a 7.1 quake the following day.

The two larger quakes, the most severe in Southern California in decades, were felt across the region as far away as Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
