5.7-magnitude earthquake shakes Northern California
A magnitude 5.7 earthquake was widely felt as it rattled Northern California Thursday night, breaking dishes and shaking mirrors off walls. But authorities said there were no immediate reports of injury or serious damage, AP reports.
The temblor struck at 8:47 p.m. and was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville in far northeastern California, said Rafael Abreu, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Center in Golden, Colo.
Slight damage has been reported including objects falling from shelves and dishes rattled or broken, according to a report from the National Weather Service.
There have been eight aftershocks ranging from 2.6-to-3.5-magnitude.
