Magnitude-4.7 Quake Hits Northern California
A light earthquake struck the mountains of Central California on Thursday, but there were no immediate reports of injury or damage. The quake at 7:17 p.m. PST had a preliminary magnitude of 4.7 and was centered about 114 miles east of Sacramento, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was followed by several smaller aftershocks. Calls inquiring about the temblor were pouring in to the sheriff's department, but no injuries or damage were immediately reported, a dispatcher said. At the Bridgeport Inn, the quake rattled the nerves of some guests, said manager Dennis Williams. ``It was a five-second roller and then a really hard jolt,'' Williams said. ``This building was built 1877. ... It's been standing this long, and this little earthquake wasn't going to take it down.''
