Two earthquakes struck in Huron, Calif., Friday, registering magnitudes of 4.2 and 4.0, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The first earthquake hit at 6:22 a.m. PT. One minute later, the 4.2 earthquake was reported.
According to the USGS, the epicenter was eight miles from Avenal, Calif., nine miles from Kettleman City, Calif., 17 miles from Coalinga, Calif., and 132 miles from San Jose. Huron, Calif., is about 50 miles south of Fresno.
About six hours earlier, a magnitude 3.5 earthquake struck Beverly Hills. Thousands of people reported feeling it, the Associated Press reported.
A spokesman from the USGS told NBC News the earthquakes caused no reported damage.
Seismologists say the quakes are not on the San Andreas Fault and weren't triggered by a magnitude-7.6 earthquake in Costa Rica, according to the Associated Press.
