An earthquake with a 4.0 magnitude struck off the Northern California coast Friday morning, shaking a portion of Humboldt County.

The quake hit at 10:07 a.m. about 44 miles west of Petrolia in the Lost Coast region, about 57 miles west-southwest of Eureka, according to data from the U.S. Geological Survey.

The region is where several tectonic plates interact with each other and cause frequent earthquakes.
