Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake Hits Bay Area
BERKELEY, Calif. (CBS/AP) — A 3.2-magnitude earthquake was recorded near Berkeley in Alameda County Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The temblor, which occurred at 1:07 a.m., was centered about 2.5 miles northeast of Berkeley and had a depth of 4.5 miles, according to the USGS.
Another moderate offshore earthquake gave a jolt to cities in far Northern California, but there are no reports of damages or injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-4.9 quake struck shortly after 4 p.m. about 33 miles northwest of the coastal city of Eureka at a depth of about 6 miles.
No tsunami warning was issued.
Eureka police Sgt. Rodrigo Sanchez says the quake gave the area a sharp jolt that felt like it lasted less than a second.
Sanchez and Humboldt Bay Assistant Fire Chief Rusty Goodlive (GOOD’-lihv) say their departments have received no calls about damages or injuries.
Eureka has a population of about 27,000 and neighboring Arcata has about 17,000 people.
