HUMBOLDT, Calif.- The U.S. Geological Survey says that a 4.4 magnitude quake hit just east of Blue Lake in Humboldt County around 6 p.m. Wednesday night.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office says there have been no reports of damage in the area. However, the earthquake was big enough that 820 people reported feeling the shake, according to the U.S.G.S. page. 

This is the latest in a series of earthquakes. Around 10 hit this past weekend on the North Coast near Petrolia and Eureka, all during a 24-hour span. 

The earthquake that hit Wednesday night was slightly larger than those that hit over the weekend.
