Last week: 2.8-magnitude Earthquake “Rattled” Bay Area, Near El Cerrito

A 2.8-magnitude earthquake rattled the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday, March 11, geologists said.

The 3-mile-deep earthquake shook near El Cerrito, about 15 miles northeast of San Francisco, at about 9:45 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Nearly 1,000 people reported feeling the earthquake. Light shaking could be felt in San Francisco, Berkeley and Vallejo, according to USGS.

Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey says. It replaces the old Richter scale.

“It was small but it rattled glasses and jolted the couch because we are close enough to the epicenter,” one person said on Twitter. “Been a while since we had a reminder. Time to get back to long deferred construction of earthquake supply stash.” continue reading.
