A small earthquake was reported just two miles northwest of Redding Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake which happened at 11:30 a.m. was a magnitude 3.3 and 14 miles deep.

The Redding quake comes on the heels of several other small earthquakes reported across California in the past 24 hours.

The largest of the quakes was a magnitude-3.7 temblor that struck at 12:39 a.m. Wednesday just north of Hemet, about 85 miles east of Los Angeles. It was downgraded from an initial estimate of 3.9. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was 10 miles deep. A magnitude-3.1 quake occurred earlier Wednesday near Corona.

At this time no damage has been reported in Redding.
