Two dead as 6.4 magnitude earthquake rocks California with tens of thousands without power

At least two people have been injured and tens of thousands of homes and businesses left without power after a strong earthquake hit northern California.

The “insane” 6.4-magnitude quake struck on Tuesday at 2.34am local time (10.34am UK time), with its epicentre just off the coast and about 10 miles (16.km) deep, but there was no tsunami threat.
