Breaking: 6.0 Quake Offshore Eureka Again

Not much news yet, but preliminary reports say no damage. We felt it well over 200 miles inland.

!! You can find an update HERE but not much has changed. !!

A magnitude 6.0 quake shook Northern California early this afternoon, apparently along the same fault under the Pacific Ocean where a 6.5 temblor hit last month.

Today’s quake was centered 47 miles southwest of Eureka and 35 miles northwest of Petrolia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Residents as far inland as Shasta Lake, Redding, Happy Valley and Red Bluff reported feeling “weak” shaking during the 12:20 p.m. quake. Even on the coast the shaking was reported as “light.”

It was not immediately clear whether today’s quake is an aftershock of last month’s temblor, said Leslie Gordon, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Geological Survey.
