Many people in Lamorinda felt the shake of a magnitude 3.8 earthquake this afternoon. The earthquake struck at 2:57 p.m. and the epicenter was located near Pacifica and San Bruno, according to the United States Geological Survey’s earthquake tracker.

There have been no injuries or damage reported in the Lamorinda area, which is common with an earthquake of this magnitude.

An interesting note is that today is the 105th anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

A magnitude 2.4 earthquake happened at 4:55 p.m. in the same area, but that was not likely felt in Lamorinda.

More technical information about the earthquake is available through the USGS’s website.
