​5.7 earthquake shakes Northern California coast

FERNDALE, Calif. -- An 5.7 magnitude earthquake hit a coastal area of Northern California on Wednesday, CBS San Francisco reported.

The quake hit just after 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time about 40 miles southwest of Eureka and 25 miles southwest of Ferndale, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was originally measured as a 5.1 magnitude earthquake.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

"It felt like a small rolling quake here," Pam Cahill, who lives north of the epicenter in Arcata, told CBS San Francisco. "I normally lock all the cabinets for this kind of thing but I didn't have them locked. Still, nothing fell out."

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no danger of a tsunami generated by the quake.
