An earthquake with a magnitude of 6 has shaken northern California, causing injuries and damage to buildings.

The USGS said it struck four miles north-west of the town of American Canyon, at a depth of 6.7 miles.

At least 87 people have been taken to hospital in the Napa area, with three of them seriously injured.

California Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in order to deal with the effects of the quake.

More than 10,000 households were without power in Napa.

Meanwhile, a 7 magnitude quake struck southern Peru last evening. The quake struck 36 miles east-northeast of Tambo at a depth of 37 miles.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
