GREENVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- A magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit Northern California Thursday night that was felt nearly 150 miles away, but there were no early reports of damage.
The temblor struck at 8:47 p.m. and was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville in far northeastern California, said Rafael Abreu, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Center in Golden, Colo.
Abreu said there were no reports of damage in the early field reports.
KCRA-TV in Sacramento reported that the Plumas County temblor was felt in downtown Sacramento, about 145 miles south of the epicenter.
People in Yuba and Sutter Counties, south of Plumas, said they felt a rolling quake, according to the Marysville Appeal-Democrat.
There have been eight aftershocks ranging from 2.6-to-3.5-magnitude.
"People in the area felt a strong jolt, but it was not enough to generate serious damage, based on early field reports," Abreu said.
