Hours ago, USGS reported a 3.5-magnitude earthquake that struck 26 miles north of Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California, USA at a very shallow depth of 3.1km. The earthquake struck at 8.16pm local time.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the earthquake might be revised in the next few hours as seismologists review their data. No information regarding any damage has been reported yet. Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake have not caused alot of damage.

It is not believed to have caused any significant damage but nearby towns or cities might have felt only a weak shaking such as Healdsburg (pop. 11,700) located 14 miles from the epicenter, Russian River (pop. 11,700) 14 miles away, Clearlake (pop. 15,200) 15 miles away, Windsor (pop. 27,500) 18 miles away, Santa Rosa (pop. 175,000) 26 miles away, and Rohnert Park (pop. 42,400) 33 miles away.
