SANTA ROSA, Calif. >> There are no reports of damage or injuries after a magnitude 4.5 earthquake rattled a rural area of Northern California.

The United States Geological Survey says the quake hit at 2:23 a.m. Saturday about 24 miles north of Santa Rosa, or about 76 miles north of San Francisco.

The USGS had initially reported the quake as having a 4.3 magnitude, but issued a revision after it was reviewed by seismologists.

Some residents reported feeling light shaking, but a sheriff's dispatcher says there were no calls of damage or injuries.

The area where the earthquake hit is near the Geysers geothermal development, a complex of 22 geothermal power plants in the Mayacamas Mountains. The area experiences frequent seismic activity.
