Earthquake Felt in Southern Oregon

EARTHQUAKEGRANTS PASS, Ore. — People in southern Oregon are still sharing stories after feeling an earthquake late last night.

The earthquake happened off the northern California coast Sunday night. The United States Geological Survey reports that the earthquake was about 50 miles west of Eureka. The quake was originally reported as a 6.9 magnitude but was later downgraded to a 6.8.

Many people felt the shaking inland in Grants Pass. Some said it was more surprising than scary.

”It wasn’t even hardly anything,” said Cherie Penney, who felt the shaking at her home in Grants Pass. “Somebody could have just slept through it. My dogs didn’t even respond to it. It’s nothing like some of the major earthquakes that I’ve been in in California.”

Since the quake hit, there have been no reports of damage or injury.
