Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- No damage or injuries have been reported after two earthquakes rattled the Northern California coast Friday night.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 5.1 quake hit about 78 miles southwest of Eureka at 6:52 p.m. Friday.

Then just after 11 p.m. a magnitude 5.2 earthquake was recorded about 62 miles southwest of Eureka.

A dispatcher at the Eureka Police Department says the quakes were felt in the community, but police had no reports of damage or injuries.

USGS seismologist John Bellini says the quakes took place in an area where there's a lot of seismic activity.
