BREAKING NEWS – Authorities say a magnitude 4.1 earthquake rattled the San Francisco Bay Area in California, but no injuries or property damage was immediately reported. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. The quake, with a depth of about 7 miles, was centered about a mile north of Fremont, which is located about 35 miles southeast of San Francisco.
The Fremont Police Department told The Associated Press that there have been no reports of damage or injuries. The quake comes about 11 months after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck the region in late August 2014. It was the largest quake to hit Northern California in a quarter-century. That quake killed one woman and injured hundreds of other people while causing about $400 million in property damage in Napa Valley. MORE
