SOLEDAD, Calif. (AP) — An earthquake measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale has struck a wilderness area of Central California.

The Pinnacles National Monument is a vast wilderness area containing a rock formation left by an extinct volcano. The San Andreas fault runs through the region and seismic activity is frequent.
