Another 3.6 magnitude earthquake hits East Bay, second in 12 hours

Another magnitude 3.6 earthquake — preceded by magnitude 1.5 and 1.8 earthquakes early this morning — gave the East Bay another shock today, causing little or no damage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The agency reported that the quakes struck at 1:32 a.m., 3:59 a.m. and 9:57 a.m. and were centered in southeast Oakland in the area of the Hayward Fault — the same location as Tuesday night’s quakes.

Copying and pasting the coordinates from the agency into Google maps gives the epicenter location.
