No damage or injuries have been reported after a 4.3 magnitude earthquake rattled a coastal area in far Northern California.
The US Geological Survey says the quake hit at 5:05 am (local time) today about three miles (five kilometres) northwest of Fort Bragg in Mendocino County.
Initially the earthquake had been reported as a 4.2 magnitude quake, but the USGS upgraded the quake after it was reviewed by a seismologist.
A Fort Bragg police dispatcher says there was no damage. Police did receive calls from city residents about the quake. Fort Bragg is about 225 kilometres north of San Francisco.
