Small earthquake shakes Northern California

By Associated Press

POSTED:



FORT BRAGG, Calif. >> No damage or injuries have been reported after a 4.3 magnitude earthquake rattled a coastal area in far Northern California.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 5:05 a.m. Sunday about three miles northwest of Fort Bragg in Mendocino County. Initially the earthquake had been reported as a 4.2 magnitude quake, but the USGS upgraded the quake after it was reviewed by a seismologist.

The earthquake was too small to generate a tsunami.

A Fort Bragg police dispatcher says though there was no damage, police did receive calls from city residents about the quake.

Fort Bragg is about 140 miles north of San Francisco.

Isn't the Cascadia subduction zone a bit overdue and supposed to occur sometime soon? The spooky part of it happening would be the tsunami it would generate a how it would affect the Hawaiian Islands.
