PORTLAND, Ore. (KABC) -- A magnitude 5.3 earthquake jolted an area about 140 miles off the southern Oregon coast on Wednesday night.
The quake was felt from southern Oregon to the outskirts of San Francisco, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
Geologists said the quake was relatively shallow, but there was no danger of a tsunami.
The temblor occurred in an area of the Pacific where two plates are sliding past each other in a horizontal motion, officials said.
