Minutes ago the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that an earthquake of 3.2-magnitude struck 17 miles northwest of Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California, USA at a very shallow depth of 0.3km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Based on preliminary data the quake did not cause any significant damage and towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Forrestville (pop. 3,300) located 8 miles from the epicenter, Healdsburg (pop. 11,700) 8 miles away, Russian River (pop. 11,700) 8 miles away, Windsor (pop. 27,500) 10 miles away, Larkfield-Wikiup (pop. 8,900) 14 miles away, Santa Rosa (pop. 175,000) 17 miles away, and Rohnert Park (pop. 42,400) 22 miles away.
