A 5.2 magnitude earthquake struck California overnight – with tremors felt by residents of San Francisco.
According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake’s center was about 2.5 miles southwest of East Shore — about 245 miles north of San Francisco.
A brief jolt was felt in the San Francisco Bay Area, but there are no immediate reports of damage.
People said they felt the quake in Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, San Joaquin, Solano, Colusa, Nevada, Yolo and Butte counties.
The quake was followed by several aftershocks ranging in magnitude from 2.5 to 3.8, according to the US Geological Survey.
The California Highway Patrol in Yuba-Sutter said the earthquake disrupted the agency’s control center in Chico, and emergency numbers were down.
A local resident said the tremor “woke him up at night.”
Another said: “Felt stronger than before… scary.”
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake was reported off the coast of California earlier this year.
Tremors were felt in parts of Los Angeles, and residents compared the quake’s effects to those of a “train.”
