EUREKA, Calif. (AP) — A moderate offshore earthquake gave a jolt to cities in far Northern California, but there are no reports of damages or injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-4.9 quake struck shortly after 4 p.m. about 33 miles northwest of the coastal city of Eureka at a depth of about 6 miles.
No tsunami warning was issued.
Eureka police Sgt. Rodrigo Sanchez says the quake gave the area a sharp jolt that felt like it lasted less than a second.
Sanchez and Humboldt Bay Assistant Fire Chief Rusty Goodlive (GOOD'-lihv) say their departments have received no calls about damages or injuries.
Eureka has a population of about 27,000 and neighboring Arcata has about 17,000 people.
