(NEW YORK) — A “notable” earthquake struck the northern coast of California early Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The magnitude 6.4 quake was reported just after 2:30 a.m. near the town of Ferndale, followed by nearly 20 smaller aftershocks. The temblor knocked out power to nearly 70-thousand homes in Humboldt County. The California Highway Patrol has closed a bridge in Ferndale due to possible structural damage.
