    Around 8:47 p.m. PDT, an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.7 shook in the mountains of California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    The quake hit roughly 7 miles west-northwest of Greenville, Calif., near Lake Almanor.

    Light shaking was reported in Reno, Nev., and was able to be felt as far away as Eureka, Calif., and outside of San Francisco, Calif.

    According to the USGS, the only report of damage from the earthquake was at the Quail Lodge at Lake Almanor, where dishes fell off of counters and some computers were damaged.

    So far there have been more than 15 aftershocks ranging from 2.6 to 3.5 in magnitude.
