Magnitude-3.2 quake in SF Bay area jolts Berkeley

November 5, 2011 - 6:40 PM

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.2 has rattled part of the San Francisco Bay area.

The U.S. Geological Survey ways the quake hit at 2:52 p.m. about three miles southeast of downtown Berkeley. A police dispatcher says police hadn't received any reports of damage or injuries.

The quake follows a series of similar-sized temblors that shook the area last month. Two quakes on Oct. 20 — one with a magnitude of 3.8 and another a magnitude 4.0 — hit the same day that many Californians took part in an annual earthquake preparedness drill.
