An earthquake has rattled a remote area of Plumas County according to the Associated Press, but authorities say there are no reports of damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a quake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.8 hit around 12:09 p.m. Sunday about two miles southwest of the community of Cromberg, or about 40 miles south of Susanville.
A dispatcher with the Plumas County Sheriff's Department says the department had not received any calls for service. The quake comes after four quakes ranging from magnitude 3.5 to 2.5 hit between late Friday and early Sunday in nearby Shasta County.
All of those quakes were centered about 30 miles east of Redding. No damage was reported in those quakes. A geophysicist with the U.S.G.S says it is too early to tell if the earthquakes were related.
