A 3.7-magnitude earthquake was felt by people throughout Lamorinda today at 3:15 p.m. The earthquake was centered one mile outside of Danville, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

At 3:30 p.m., an aftershock centered at the same location measured a magnitude of 1.9.

No damages or injuries are expected as an earthquake this size typically does not do much harm.

It is the second earthquake in three days that Lamorinda residents have felt. On Saturday at 3:30 p.m., a 3.2-magnitude earthquake centered in El Cerrito shook enough for some residents of Lamorinda to take notice.
