The body of a 56-year-old man was found pinned under a jeep over the state line in Pahrump, Nevada, around 100 miles from the epicenter of the earthquakes near Ridgecrest, California.

Deputies with the Nye County Sheriff's Office went to the man's Pahrump home on Tuesday after he was missing for six days and found his body stuck beneath his Jeep, the sheriff's office said.

"This is what we believe is an earthquake-related death", said Sgt. Adam Tippetts of the Nye County Sheriff's office, but the man's name was not released, pending notification of his family.

Two strong quakes - a magnitude 6.4 and a 7.1, respectively - struck Thursday and Friday near the small town of Ridgecrest, just outside the 1.2 million-acre base in the Mojave Desert.

Photos snapped on Saturday (July 6) by tiny Earth-observing Dove satellites, which are built and operated by San Francisco-based company Planet, show a new surface rupture near the desert town of Ridgecrest, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles.

Both that temblor and the following day's 7.1 magnitude quake rattled Pahrump, Tippetts said.
