The magnitude 5.7 earthquake that struck Northern California on Thursday was the largest on-land temblor in California since 2008, officials said. The last quake similar to this magnitude was a magnitude 5.5 that struck Southern California in July 2008 , said David Schwartz, an earthquake geologist for the Northern California USGS division in Menlo Park. The Chino Hills temblor caused little damage, but it was the most sizable quake to hit a metropolitan part of California since the much larger and destructive 1994 Northridge quake.
