OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – A 3.1-magnitude earthquake was reported in Oakland, 1.2 miles northeast of San Leandro, at 8:34 a.m. Wednesday.
The epicenter, as reported by the United States Geological Survey, is in Oakland at the southern end of Chabot Park, adjacent to Interstate 580.
The Hayward Fault, between the Pacific and North American plates, runs along the East Bay from the San Pablo Bay to San Jose, and through Oakland and San Leandro.
One viewer who called into the KRON4 assignment desk described the quake as a “medium, fast jolt,” similar to “having someone bump your chair.”
