GREENVILLE, Calif. (AP) A sheriff says an earthquake in far northeastern California did not cause any injuries, but did cause moderate damages, including to a water tank.

Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood says the magnitude-5.7 quake sent items tumbling from grocery store shelves and downed chimneys when it hit at 8:47 p.m. Thursday.

The U.S. Geological Survey’s National Earthquake Center says it was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville, and was felt as far away as San Francisco and in two other states. It was followed by multiple aftershocks, including a magnitude 4.9 temblor that struck early Friday morning.

About 300 people were affected by the damaged water system.

Pacific Gas & Electric said about 660 customers lost power on the southwestern edge of Lake Almanor at about 9:39 p.m.
