Seismologists said that no major tsunami threat was expected.

A 6.5 MAGNITUDE earthquake has struck off the coast of northern California, but no major tsunami threat was expected, seismologists said.

The epicentre of the quake, which hit at 6.49am (2.49pm GMT), was located 157 kilometres west of Ferndale, California at a depth of 10 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said no Pacific-wide tsunami threat was expected from the event, and there was no specific threat to Hawaii.
