A massive earthquake has been reported to have hit off the shores of California this afternoon. CNN News and weather officials have said the quake of a "6.5 magnitude" hit just off the northern coast of California and many areas are reporting power outages,broken windows and disrupted phone lines.
The quake, which ran about 10 miles deep, hit at 4:27 p.m. (7:27 p.m. ET) Saturday, about 25 miles from Eureka.
Reports have not yet been established on the full extent of the damage however the US Coast Guard has had no reports of any injuries as of yet. More reports are expected as the night wears on. Sources are so far relaying that two of the largest power stations in the area are reported to be up and running and in normal working order.
The National Earthquake Information Center shows a myriad of small quakes that have been happening all day along the Pacific coast of North America. After taking a look at the aerial view of where these quakes have been occurring, one might wonder if these Pacific quakes have any relations to the earlier Solomon Island earthquakes.
