No major damages after quake on Hoopa Valley Reservation
Posted: Tuesday, February 14, 2012
A magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck the
Hoopa Valley Reservation
in northern California on Monday but no major damages were reported.
The epicenter was near Weitchpec, a community on the reservation. The quake was felt as far north as Oregon.
”This is a type of earthquake we've had before and we'll have again,” Humboldt State University geology professor Lori Dengler told The Eureka Times-Standard. “They're unlikely to do much in the way of damage and probably don't tend to get much bigger than what we had today.”
