A 6.9 quake has hit California with experts warning there is a 10% chance that aftershocks could be equal to or larger than the original shock. The shock hit late Sunday night, at around 22:18 local time (06:18 GMT).
Several aftershocks under magnitude 4 have rattled the area throughout the night, and these could continue for days or even weeks.
The epicenter was about 48 miles north of Ferndale and was felt in San Francisco, 250 miles away.
So far there are no reports of injuries.
Updates will follow.
