Earthquake Northern California Today!

Posted: February 4th, 2010 in Earthquakes by LALATE

Earthquake Northern California Today

MAPS! Here again are maps of that MAJOR earthquake today in Northern California. The Earthquake in Northern California today 2010 could be felt for miles.

This was due in part to the terrain of the region and the shallow depth of the shaker, measuring a mere 7 miles underground. Reports of damage are pending. No reports of injuries are indicated.

This is the second substantial quake to hit this Eureka neighboring region in just a few weeks. But a quake measuring 6.0 of this magnitude is substantial, even for California standards.

The official tsunami statement reads as follows:

“At 12:20 PM Pacific Standard Time on February 4, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 6.0 occurred 50 miles/80 Km southwest of Eureka, California.

“The magnitude is such that a tsunami IS NOT EXPECTED. However, in coastal areas of intense shaking, locally generated tsunamis can be triggered by underwater landslides. This will be the only WCATWC message issued for this event.

The location and magnitude are based on preliminary information. “Further information will be issued by the United States Geological Survey or the appropriate regional seismic network.”

Here are breaking news maps of the earthquake:
