Northern California earthquake near Ferndale, Eureka: outages reported

A preliminary magnitude 6.4 earthquake rocked Northern California early Tuesday morning, the region’s strongest quake in years.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The US Geological Survey said the quake occurred at 2:34 a.m. PT in waters about 7.5 miles west of Ferndale at a depth of just over 16 miles. The city is about 19 miles south of Eureka, near the California-Oregon border.

Early Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service’s tsunami warning system reported that there was no tsunami threat associated with the quake.

Tuesday’s magnitude 6.4 earthquake may be the largest to hit California since July 2019, when a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck the Ridgecrest area of ​​Southern California, according to the State Department of Conservation. A magnitude 6.5 earthquake was recorded about 100 miles offshore near Ferndale in 2016.

Just before 4 a.m., PT Pacific Gas & Electric Co. reported tens of thousands of customers without power in the area. In Humboldt County alone, where Ferndale is located, more than 70,000 people were in the dark.
