FERNDALE, California– A 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck parts of northern California early Tuesday, shaking people awake, the US Geological Survey said, and leaving thousands without power afterward.
No injuries were reported immediately after the earthquake, which occurred at approximately 2:34 a.m. Pacific Time near Ferndale, a small community about 213 miles (343 kilometers) northwest of San Francisco.
After the earthquake, more than 55,000 customers in the area were without power, according to poweroutage.us, which tracks outages across the country.
The quake came just days after a small magnitude 3.6 earthquake struck the San Francisco Bay Area, waking thousands of people up at 3:39 a.m. Saturday and causing minor damage.
The earthquake was centered in El Cerrito, about 16 miles from downtown San Francisco.
