Another moderate earthquake in the Pacific about 30 miles (48 kilometers) offshore of far Northern California was felt lightly by some along the coast but brought no reports of damage or injuries.

A preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-4.5 quake struck at 9:11 p.m. Friday at a depth of about five miles (eight kilometers).

It was located about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southwest of Eureka and about 250 miles (400 kilometers) northwest of San Francisco.

The National Tsunami Warning Center says there is no danger of tidal problems and officials in Humboldt County say there are no reports of damage or injuries. Dozens of people reported to the USGS they had felt some light shaking.

It was in the same offshore area as a magnitude-4.9 quake on Monday and several smaller ones that followed this week.
