Northern California rocked by a 6.9 earthquake

A magnitude 6.9 earthquake off the West Coast shook Northern California and Oregon late Sunday. There are no reports of damage so far from either the temblor or the several smaller aftershocks, and no tsunami warning was issued. The quake hit about 50 miles west of the seaside town of Eureka, where a smaller 6.5 quake caused significant damage in 2010. This map, from the USGS, shows how widely Sunday night's earthquake was felt. --Peter Weber
