NBA Summer League 2019 has been disrupted by a 6.9-7.1 magnitude earthquake originating just outside of the town of Ridgecrest in Southern California. The quake hit at 8:19, Pacific time. Tremors were felt 150 miles away in Las Vegas, where the NBA’s annual Summer League is held. Friday night games have been cancelled and the use of Thomas and Mack Center at UNLV remains in question as the tournament goes forward.

Jeff Curtin, Director of Broadcasting with the Trail Blazers, tweeted out video of the area shaking:

UPDATE 10:26 PM, Pacific

We will update the story, and the quake’s effect on the Summer League schedule, as we get news.
