MENDOCINO NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. (AP) — A light earthquake has rumbled California’s redwood country.
The U.S. Geological Survey said an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.4 shook parts of Mendocino and Lake counties at 8:49 p.m.
The quake was centered six miles of Lake Pillsbury in the Mendocino National Forest and 22 miles east of Willitts.
A dispatcher at the Willitts Police Department says a relative called to tell him about the temblor, but there were no immediate reports of injury or damage.
No one reported feeling it to the USGS.
