When the magnitude 7.1 quake hit Friday night, the foundation of Brenda Perrone’s home in the town of Trona cracked, glass shattered, and her belongings went everywhere.

"I’m lucky to be out alive," she said. "I’m never going back. I’ve got a few things in my truck. My son is flying from Tennessee to pick me up. He’ll be here tonight. I’m getting out."
