Small Quake, Aftershock Hit Berkeley Overnight
BERKELEY (CBS SF) – A 2.3-magnitude earthquake struck just outside Berkeley late Wednesday night, followed by a 1.8-magnitude aftershock Thursday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The earthquake shook the area 1-mile east-northeast of Berkeley at 11:10 p.m., according to the USGS.
The quake had about a 6-mile depth.
The aftershock was recorded at 12:52 a.m., according to the USGS.
Many Berkeley residents said they did not feel the temblor, unlike when a series of earthquakes in October shook the East Bay from a Berkeley epicenter.
