A 3.3 magnitude earthquake hit Gerber at 10:43 p.m. Sunday night just 5 miles away from Los Molinos.

Many residents who live there told us the quake rattle their entire home.

"Like my kitchen cabinets shook and like all the dishes shook in it. Like I said my first reaction was did someone jump on the roof? Because my whole ceiling looked like it shook," said a Los Molinos resident. 

"It sounded like a freight train. I even looked outside to make sure nobody drove up and hit my house, but yeah it was scary," said a Los Molinos resident.
