Northern California Earthquake

This happened in my neck of California, but much nearer my sister, Indigo Rose, who lives about 36 miles from the epicenter. I didn't feel the shaker while I was attending a TEA Party meeting in a church.
(Reuters) - A magnitude 5.7 earthquake struck Northern California on Thursday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The epicenter of the quake was 6 miles northwest of the town of Greenville, and near the smaller community of Canyondam, the USGS said.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Allen Shephard, a hunting and fishing guide at Quail Lodge at Lake Almanor in Canyondam, said the quake knocked him "right off the couch and onto the floor."
The floor of the lodge was littered with broken dishware, and cabinets were in disarray, said Shephard, 62.
