Did You Feel the Earthquake Last Night?

The U.S. Geological survey said people as far north as Marin reported shakes following an earthquake in San Leandro, approximately 30 miles away.

The U.S. Geological survey recieved reports of shakes from Marin County residents and people throughout the Bay Area last night minutes after a 3.6-magnitude earthquake shook San Leandro.

The USGS reported a 2.3-magnitude at 11:41 p.m. Tuesday in an area three miles from San Leandro, about five minutes after the initial quake at 11:36 p.m., according to the USGS.

The initial temblor had a depth of about 5.5 miles and was centered near San Leandro, while the aftershock had a recorded depth of about 5 miles, according to the USGS.

People in Danville, San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and southeast Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood also reported feeling the shake.

There were other reports of shakes felt throughout parts of Marin County, the Peninsula and the East Bay.

Several minor earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 1.1 to 1.8 have occurred around the East Bay and offshore of San Francisco this past week, according to the USGS.
