In what appears to be an aftershock to the 6.5 quake in January, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Eureka, Ferndale and other Northern California coastal cities at 12:20 p.m. today. The January 9th quake caused quake some damage, but no injuries. As always, big earthquakes are good reminders to prepare for when one happens here.
