Northern California earthquake felt across large area

The magnitude 5.7 quake that hit Northern California tonight was apparently felt across a large area.

The quake hit shortly before 9 p.m. The U.S. Geological Survey says its epicenter was 27 miles southwest of Susanville and seven miles west northwest of Greenville. That's about 150 miles northeast of Sacramento.

It was felt as far away as Sacramento, and those who felt it described it on social media as a rolling quake that lasted about 30 seconds.

There have been small aftershocks, the biggest recorded as having a 3.5 magnitude.

No reports of major damage or injuries at this point.

Cal Poly baseball players felt the earthquake in Stockton. The Mustangs beat Pacific 8-4 in a conference game.
