Dozens of aftershocks have occurred since Sunday's magnitude-6.9 earthquake that rattled Northern California, the state's largest temblor in nearly a decade. The largest of the aftershocks, near Ferndale in Humboldt County, measured a magnitude 4.5, and officials expected them to continue for several days. Overall, the aftershocks have been getting smaller and less frequent. Sunday's quake caused no damage or injuries because it was centered 50 miles off the coast of Eureka and occurred at a depth of "10 miles beneath the Pacific seabed," according to the U.S. Geological Survey . By the time the seismic energy reached the shore, it had dissipated significantly.

The magnitude 6.9 earthquake that rattled Northern California on Sunday was the state's largest temblor in nearly a decade. But it caused no damage or injuries. That's because the quake was centered 50 miles off the coast of Eureka and occurred at a depth of "10 miles beneath the Pacific seabed," according to the U.S. Geological Survey. By the time the seismic energy reached the shore, it had dissipated significantly. The USGS said the North Coast felt only moderate to light shaking.

YEVPATORIA, Ukraine - An anti-submarine boat may have been the first casualty of the Russian incursion into Crimea, but it was hardly an act of violence, much less war: The Russian navy sank one of its own, junked vessels to create an obstacle, a Ukrainian official said Wednesday. Ukraine Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Col. Alexei Mazepa said Russian sailors pulled the anti-submarine vessel Ochakov out of a naval junkyard and sank it in the straits that connect the Black Sea with a body of water known as Donuzlav Lake.

GUADALUPE, Calif. - As a nearby tractor purred to life, Miguel Villagomez picked up his knife and stepped into a furrow of dirt amid thousands of plump heads of cauliflower ready for cutting. "This," the 19-year-old from Michoacán, Mexico, said with a touch of pride, "is my place. " For decades, the lush soil in this corner of California has been tilled largely by immigrants from Latin America, many returning year after year. But that long-standing relationship has encountered unexpected turbulence in recent weeks.

At least 17 flights that were scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport were canceled Monday morning after a massive winter storm wreaked havoc on the East Coast. The canceled flights had been scheduled to fly to LAX from airports in Washington D.C., New York and New Jersey, among others. In a Twitter message Monday morning, Ronald Reagan National Airport said runways were closed as crews made a "herculean effort" to clear snow. The winter storm marched toward the East Coast on Sunday night, prompting airlines to preemptively cancel 1,500 flights scheduled for Monday.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - President Obama flew across the country seeking to soothe the jangled nerves of allies Friday, meeting in the morning with House Democrats worried about reelection and at day's end with a key Middle Eastern leader who sits precariously close to regional conflicts. The day's tour took the president from the eastern shore of Maryland to the drought-stricken Central Valley to a desert compound in Rancho Mirage - an aberrant schedule for a White House usually regimented in its commitment to generating just one message a day. In his evening meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II at the Sunnylands retreat, Obama spoke about the civil war in Syria, the resurgent violence of Al Qaeda and a proposed framework for Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.
