SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities say they have no reports of damage or injuries after an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.5 hit off the coast of Northern California.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit about 66 miles southwest of Eureka at 2:03 p.m. Tuesday.

USGS Geophysicist Dale Grant referred to the quake as a "very insignificant quake" because of its magnitude and location.

A Eureka police dispatcher says the department had not received any calls about the earthquake, and it was not felt by personnel at the police station.
