(Bay City News) A 3.2-magnitude earthquake shook the East Bay this afternoon, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake struck at 2:52 p.m. in roughly the same area that has experienced several 3.0-magnitude or larger seismic events in recent weeks, according to the USGS.
This afternoon's earthquake was centered 2 miles north of Piedmont and 4 miles southeast of Berkeley. It had a depth of 4 miles, according to the USGS.
BART trains were experiencing minor delays of less than 10 minutes across the system because of the quake, according to a dispatcher.
After an earthquake, the transit system holds its trains momentarily before allowing them to proceed to the next station in manual mode, the dispatch said.
