Berkeley was shaken by three earthquakes early Tuesday morning, one at magnitude 3.2 and two more about an hour later at magnitude 2.7 and magnitude 2.6.

The first quake, which struck at 1:07 a.m., caused weak to light shaking and no damage, according to preliminary reports from the U.S. Geological Survey. The second struck at 2:06 a.m., and the third came nine minutes later, according to the USGS. All three occurred at a depth of about seven kilometers.

The epicenters of all three earthquakes were just northeast of the UC Berkeley campus in Tilden Regional Park. Tuesday morning’s earthquakes come after a magnitude-3.0 earthquake that shook the area Oct. 6. That quake also had an epicenter in Tilden Park.

The first earthquake was felt as far away as Los Altos, Pleasanton and Daly City, according to the USGS website.
