The earthquake was followed by minor aftershocks.

At least two people were killed, 11 injured and thousands without power after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck northern California on Tuesday.

This was reported by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, which ruled out a tsunami threat.

It occurred at 2:34 a.m. local time (10:34 GMT) and was centered 350 kilometers north of San Francisco and about three km from the beach.

It was followed by about 80 aftershocks ranging from 4.6 to 2.5 on the Richter scale, according to the US Geological Survey.
