California earthquake shakes Eastern Sierra
A magnitude 4.4 earthquake shook the Mammoth Lakes area on Wednesday morning.
The temblor occurred at 4:59 a.m. a few miles south of the Eastern Sierra community, which is prone to earthquakes.
No damage or injuries were reported.
The Bay Area was rattled by a 3.2 temblor on Tuesday night.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey's Did You Feel It? map, hundreds of people signed in to report the Bay Area temblor. Many were in such cities as Oakland, San Leandro, Burlingame, Alameda, San Francisco and Castro Valley.
The quake, which struck at 11:36 p.m., appeared to be centered on the Hayward Fault about six miles south of Oakland. A magnitude 2.3 quake rolled through about five minutes later.
