No Tsunami Threat From Monday Morning Earthquake

After a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck near Ferndale, Calif., Monday morning, aftershocks are expected to continue in the coming days. The National Weather Service's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has declared that there is no widespread or destructive tsunami expected from this quake.

Aftershocks will not be as strong as the initial quake. No injuries or major damages have been reported as a result of the earthquake. Seismologists warn to be on the lookout for fires, as they are the greatest threat following an earthquake.

The forecast for the Bay Area this week includes mostly sunny skies and temperatures topping out in the middle to upper 60s.

Winds will average speeds in the lower to middle teens with gusts up to 20 to 25 mph.

The low temperatures for the overnight hours will stay in the upper 40s. Expect some increased cloud coverage overnight, especially near the coast, until daytime sun burns away remaining clouds and fog.

With extreme to exceptional drought still tightly grasping most of the state, any needed rainfall will likely stay away until the end of the month. Precipitation chances will remain below 5 percent through the weekend.
