A 6.4 magnitude earthquake centered in the Mojave Desert hit Southern California and parts of Nevada Thursday morning. No deaths were reported, but Kern County Fire Chief David Witt said the town of Ridgecrest, Calif., reported some structural damage and multiple injuries. He added that authorities evacuated 15 hospital patients from a regional facility as a precaution and emergency crews battled two house fires and responded to small vegetation fires, gas leaks, and cracked roads.
