Residents of the remote town of Trona began assessing the damage to their property on Sunday, after Friday's violent earthquake.
Many still have no running water or gas and have to rely on local donors for food. Many of the houses sustained damage and most residents still opt to sleep outside of their homes for fear of more intense aftershocks.
«You do what you have to. If you want to rebuild... Еще you have to suffer a little to do a little, and it's, you know, not pleasant, but we're managing,» said local resident Kay Bird.
Some neighbours sleeping outdoors were sick and elderly and some children were also having to sleep under the stars in sleeping bags.
The local region was struck by 6.4- and 7.1-magnitude quakes on July 4 and 5. No fatalities have been reported in the local area.
