SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Bay Area was rocked by a large earthquake on Tuesday afternoon. The 5.1-magnitude quake was centered south of Mt. Hamilton in the hills east of San Jose in Seven Trees, a census-designated place.
Viewer video and photos captured the moment the quake struck and the aftermath of the tremblor, which was the largest to hit the region since 2014.
