There are no reports of serious damage after an earthquake shook Northern California last night. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was a magnitude 5.7 and was widely felt across the region-- many people say they felt shaking in Sacramento. We asked you to send us your photos:
Richard Coover writes: "I’m in a small photo group and this week’s assignment was “Upside Down”, I had been struggling with this assignment until Mother Nature provided me with a subject. During the earthquake last night, this little shelf setter fell down and landed 'upside down'.
Nothing else fell or was damaged, just this little guy. (He kind of looks like Bullwinkle J. Moose doesn’t he!) We live in the Alta Sierra district of Grass Valley and last night’s quake really shook our house, and one of the aftershocks woke us up at about 1:30AM."
Pictures are from my parent's house (Ron and Jean Martin). They live in Prattville (west shore of Lake Almanor - half way between Canyon Dam and Chester).
Power knocked out, water to Prattville out due to broken mainline,aftershocks felt throughout the night. Quite the mess! Greg Martin Yuba City
