Three small earthquakes -- a pair of 3.0s and a 2.9 -- struck around the Bay Area on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey says. No injuries or damage were reported from any of the quakes.
The most widely felt of the quakes was the first, a 2.9 temblor that struck on the San Andreas Fault near Stanford. The USGS "Did You Feel It?" report page drew 272 responses in an area from South San Francisco to central San Jose. Most responses came from Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Redwood City.
At 3:11 a.m. Thursday, a 3.0 quake struck in a sparsely populated area in the hilly San Andreas Rift country south of Hollister and north of Pinnacles National Park. Four people went online to report feeling that shake.
Finally, at 3:56 a.m. Thursday, a 3.0 temblor hit near Napa, close to the epicenter of the 6.0 earthquake that caused widespread damage in the area on Aug. 24. From the 67 public responses, that shake was felt most strongly in American Canyon and Vallejo.
