An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 has shaken northern California, reports the US Geological Survey.

 

The USGS said it struck at 03:20 local time (1020 GMT) four miles (6km) north-west of American Canyon, at a depth of 6.7 miles.

 

The site is 51 miles from Sacramento and about 30 miles north-east of San Francisco, where many Twitter users say it woke them up.

 

There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage.

 

Twitter users contacted the BBC to share their experiences.

 

Sarah McLellan tweeted: "On 6th floor entire building swaying, shaking", while Matt Dyar said: "Major shaker. Stuff off shelfs. Broken glass. No house damage that is obvious."

 

Another Twitter user said: "I haven't felt one that big since the Northridge quake in the early 90s."

Pretty scary news because my dad is moving there today, he just left New York around 6am EST and suddenly I hear this an hour later.

 

Obviously his plane isn't there yet since it's a 6 hour flight.. but wow.

 

Hope everyone is okay.

See I love Cali. But this is especially why I wouldn't want to live there.

The earthquake was mostly felt by people in the Bay Area, it rapidly lost intensity with distance. There are reports of lost power and some structural damage, however.

I heard this on the radio. I'm glad that everyone over there survived. I'll return to the Bay Area after my vacation. I hope that none of my dishes and cups fell off my cupboard.

I live in Southern California, but I heard about this as soon as I woke up. Now NorCal got their big one, it's only a matter of time till SoCal gets hit by a big one too. You always gotta be ready here in Cali.

I live less than an hour away from the epicenter and wasn't woken up personally, but some of my other family members were. My brother said he went outside to see the water in our pool splashing out and onto the concrete. Crazy stuff. Best wishes to those who have been displaced by this earthquake.

God if I have to die you will have to die

Perfect timing. I'm moving to that general area (the valley) in a week.

Prior to filing a bug against any of my code, please consider this response to common concerns.

Earlier this year I was practically sitting on the epicenter of a 5.1 quake, where I live in La Habra, California. I can't imagine how much it would suck to be at the epicenter of a 6.1. The aftershocks were the worst. We had hundreds over a few days. Shaking my house at least once every other hour. And you don't know if it's going to be just a small tremor, or another bigger one.
