Second quake jolts San Francisco Bay area

Posted: Updated:

BERKELEY, CA (AP) -- The U.S. Geological Survey is revising the magnitude of today's second earthquake in the San Francisco Bay area to 3.8.

The USGS says the quake hit at 8:16 p.m., about two miles east of Berkeley.

The earthquake Thursday night comes after a 4.0 earthquake hit in the same area nearly six hours earlier.

Berkeley police say they have no reports of damage or injuries from either quake.

Thursday's quakes come almost 22 years to the day after the Loma Prieta earthquake struck the Bay area during the 1989 World Series.

The magnitude-6.9 quake killed 63 people, injured almost 3,800 and caused up to $10 billion damage.
