Did you feel it? Two earthquakes hit the North State in just one hour.

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.

Just 20 minutes prior to the earthquake in Gerber, a 2.8 quake hit Viola in Shasta County.

California has experienced 180 small earthquakes in the last 7 days.

We reached out to viewers on Facebook and many explained their experience with the quake in the comments.
