The earthquake caused light shaking in coastal communities in California and in parts of Oregon, but there were no reports of injury or damage. According to the Los Angeles Times, the 6.5 earthquake was followed by another 5.0 earthquake about 2 hours later. No tsunami threats were issued from the strong earthquake.
