A 2.7 magnitude earthquake was felt by some residents of Lamorinda who were up in the early hours of Saturday morning. The earthquake happened at 3:40 a.m. and was centered one mile north of Danville.

A quake of this size is unlikely to shake enough to awake anyone from their sleep, which is why many Lamorinda residents were unaware of this earthquake.

There has been no damage reported. No injuries have been reported either.
