Magnitude 3.3 earthquake hits San Francisco Bay Area


SAN FRANCISCO —Authorities say a magnitude 3.3 earthquake has rattled the San Francisco Bay Area, but no injuries or property damage is reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 1:26 p.m. Sunday, about 8 miles west of San Francisco.

Some San Francisco residents are reporting feeling a quick jolt.  

The quakes come nearly a year after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck the region. The August 2014 quake was the largest to hit Northern California in a quarter-century. That quake killed one woman and caused about $400 million in property damage in Napa Valley.
