BANDON, Ore. — The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., says a magnitude 6.0 quake off the Oregon Coast spurred no reports of damage and only a smattering of reports from people who felt it as a weak jolt.

The shallow quake recorded at 7:31 p.m. Tuesday more than 150 miles west of Southern Oregon did not generate a tsunami.

Within about an hour, the information center’s website recorded 39 reports of people who reported feeling the quake. Most were in Northern California and Southern Oregon and characterized it as “weak” or “barely felt.”
