A winning Mega Millions ticket worth nearly $2 million was sold at a San Bruno liquor store, but no one from the Golden State will share in Tuesday's overall jackpot of $414 million. Instead, cowinners from Florida and Maryland will split the third-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history with a cash value of more than $224 million. The largest jackpot was $656 million, split among winners in three states in 2012. Lottery officials said the two tickets matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night: 11, 19, 24, 33, 51, plus the Mega Ball of 7. Eight people in various states matched five numbers correctly and won at least $1 million each.  The ticket sold at Huntington Liquor in San Bruno, missing only the Mega Ball, is worth $1,962,339, according to lottery officials.

Northern and Southern California have long argued over which one has the best sports teams, nicer climate and most stunning scenery. When it comes to healthcare, however, there's little debate: It costs a lot less to be hospitalized in the Southland. On average, hospitals in Northern California's six most populous counties collect 56% more revenue per patient per day from insurance companies and patients than hospitals in Southern California's six largest counties, according to a Times analysis of state records.

After a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck off the coast of Northern California, Humboldt County Sheriff's Lt. Steve Knight said Monday the region "dodged a bullet. " "We had some alarms go off and other than that we dodged a bullet," Knight said. "This easily could have been a catastrophe that could have caused a lot of damage," he told the Times-Standard . The earthquake is the largest to hit the West Coast since the magnitude 7.2 Baja California quake in 2010. FULL COVERAGE: California earthquake safety The temblor, which struck less than 55 miles from McKinleyville, Fortuna, Eureka and Ferndale, was followed by at least 13 aftershocks as large as magnitude 4.6, according to the U.S. Geological Survey .

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.
