Another earthquake has struck California – this time in Union City near Fremont in the Bay Area.
The quake comes as California continues to cope with Tuesday’s 6.4 magnitude earthquake.
According to preliminary reports, Wednesday’s quake had a magnitude of 3.3.
The tremor was recorded at 6:22 p.m. local time, according to the United States Geological Survey.
The quake was recorded 1.5 miles north of Union City, the USGS said.
Tuesday’s earthquake destroyed roads and homes and left the surrounding county without power, prompting Gov. Newsom to declare a state of emergency for Humboldt County.
“Approximately 11 people have been reported injured,” the county’s website said.
“In addition, two people have died as a result of medical emergencies that arose during and/or shortly after the earthquake.
“The electricity remains switched off for more than 70,000 customers in the district.
“Pacific Gas and Electric Company is actively working to restore power with no estimated recovery time.”
