3.0 Magnitude Earthquake Jolts San Ramon

SAN RAMON (CBS SF) -- A 3.0-magnitude earthquake shook the San Ramon Valley Wednesday morning -- the 22nd quake to strike the area in 24 hours.

The quake struck at 8:14 a.m. and was centered 1 mile northeast of San Ramon and 3 miles southeast of Danville.

The USGS reported the temblor to have a depth of 5.3 miles.

Over 100 people reported feeling some shaking in the area.

The temblor follows several other small quakes in the same area overnight, including a 2.6-magnitude quake at 3:22 a.m. and a 2.9 quake at 3:58 a.m.

The earthquakes are most likely a result of seismic activity on the Calaveras fault, according to the USGS.
