A magnitude 2.7 earthquake struck north of Rancho Cucamonga this morning but caused no apparent injuries or damage, authorities said.

The micro quake hit at 10:55 a.m. at a depth of 6 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The strongest quake to hit the area recently was in 2008, when a magnitude 5.4 quake hit near Diamond Bar.
