Moderate quake shakes central California
SALINAS, Calif. (AP) — A moderate earthquake was widely felt as it rattled the central California coast, but authorities said it didn't cause any damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey said nearly 5,000 people reported on its website that they felt the magnitude 5.3 quake, when it struck shortly before midnight Saturday near King City, about 40 miles southeast of Salinas.
USGS geophysicist Amy Vaughan says the temblor struck along the San Andreas Fault and was followed by at least four aftershocks that were greater than magnitude 2.5.
