Magnitude 5.7 Earthquake Just Hit Northern California
Natural disasters are unfortunately happening way too often in the past month. On Friday, a magnitude 5.7 earthquake struck off the coast of Northern California in the Pacific Ocean.
Fortunately, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the earthquake did not cause damage or injury to the people of Northern California.
The USGS also reported that following the 5.7 earthquake a second quake of 5.6 hit closer to shore.
Both quakes hit right off the west of the California town of Petrolia, but a USGS map showed that they were not widely felt along the coast.
