A powerful 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked parts of Northern California early Tuesday, leaving tens of thousands without power and triggering at least a dozen aftershocks, according to officials and reports.
The "notable" quake struck at 2:34 a.m. local time about 7.5 miles southwest of the Humboldt County city of Ferndale, the United States Geological Survey said.
At least 12 aftershocks followed when the huge quake hit, according to the agency's data.
The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office said that at least two people were injured as a result of the earthquake, according to CNN. There were "widespread damages to roads and homes" reported throughout Humboldt County after the quake, the sheriff's office said in a tweet.
The earthquake knocked out power for more than 70,000 customers, and damaged a local bridge, splintering the asphalt.
"The bridge is closed while we conduct safety inspections due to possible seismic damage," California transportation officials said in a tweet.
