SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — The ground is still shaking south of Lake Tahoe with more than 340 aftershocks since the magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit just before 4 p.m. Thursday.

The quake jolted both sides of the California-Nevada state line, tossed boulders onto a major roadway and was felt as far off as Las Vegas and even San Francisco, with days of aftershocks predicted, authorities said.

The quake was centered south of Lake Tahoe near Walker, a rural community of a few hundred households in the eastern Sierra Nevada. No major damage or injuries were reported, authorities said.
