Earthquake Northern California 2015: Year's First Right on Time

By    |   Friday, 02 Jan 2015 06:28 AM

The first Northern California earthquake of 2015 wasted no time, rumbling off the coast on New Year's Day.

Reuters reported the U.S. Geological Survey as saying a magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean on Thursday, about 70 miles west of the town of Ferndale,

A Ferndale police dispatcher said there were no reports of injuries or damage from the quake, which according to the USGS's website occurred at 4:16 a.m. Pacific Time.

No tsunami warning was issued for the area following the magnitude 5.1 quake, according to the USGS and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

Ferndale is about 190 miles northwest of Napa, California, where a magnitude 6.0 earthquake in August struck nearby, injuring more than 200 people and causing millions of dollars in damage to buildings and the wine industry.

In September a woman died of injuries sustained in that quake.
