BERKELEY, Calif. --- Two earthquakes shook Northern California
overnight, including a 3.6-magnitude temblor in the San Francisco area
that awakened people with a jolt.
The U.S. Geological Survey says it hit around 5:36 a.m. Thursday and was
centered about a mile east of Berkeley.
Dozens of people throughout the Bay area reported feeling the temblor on
the USGS's website, but a police and fire dispatcher said she had not
received any reports of damage or injuries.
At 11:37 p.m. Wednesday, a 4.8-magnitude quake struck in the Sierra
Nevada about 90 miles northeast of Sacramento.
A Nevada County sheriff's dispatcher in Truckee says it was a rolling
quake and no damages or injuries were reported.
The Berkeley area was struck by a series of earthquakes last week.
