earthquake.jpgThe USGS says that an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.1 shook the Bay Area at 9:13 this morning.

They say the quake had a depth of 5 miles, and was centered 8 miles east-southeast of Milpitas and 9 miles east-northeast of San Jose City Hall.

No reports of damage or injuries yet, which isn’t too surprising, because a 3.1 is pretty small.

I certainly did not feel it in the Outer Sunset, but KRON4 says they are getting reports from viewers in SF saying they did, did you?
