According to the USGS, the quake struck around 8:45 p.m. Saturday 132 miles west-northwest of Sacramento and 3.1 miles west-southwest of the census-designated area of Laytonville.

The earthquake’s depth was 3 kilometers, or 1.8 miles. There were no preliminary reports of damage. 


Earthquakes come without warning and if you aren’t prepared by the time the big one hits, you will be too late. The 2019 earthquake near Ridgecrest, California shined a spotlight on the need to be prepared with a disaster kit and a plan. A little work now could help you survive the next quake.
