Minor damage has been reported from this evening’s magnitude-5.6 earthquake that struck southwest of Petrolia in areas of Southern Humboldt County, including Garberville and Redway.

The Shop Smart in Redway is currently closed while employees clean up damage to the store’s inventory and Ray’s Food Place in Garberville is only allowing customers in one at a time. “Just be patient with us,” said store employee Jacque Harmon. “We’ve got a lot of broken glass. It looks like maybe $300 worth of damage.”
