A 6.0 magnitude earthquake shook the coast of Oregon on Tuesday, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
The seismic waves hit about 159 miles off the southern coast of the state at about 7:31 p.m. Pacific time and at a depth of 6.2 miles in the Pacific Ocean, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The Pacific Tsunami Center said the quake was not strong enough to trigger a tsunami.
Shaking was felt as far away as San Francisco, California, according to the USGS, but there were no reports of damage or injury, Reuters reported.
Within an hour, 39 people reported to the USGS website they felt the quake, according to The Associated Press. Most said they had barely felt shaking.
U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Dale Grant told that the temblor took place in a seismically active area and was not uncommon at all.
These are the ones we like, he told the wire. Nobody gets hurt and there's no damage.
The Oregon quake followed another 5.6 magnitude temblor in Norther California, which also rattled the Oregon border.
