An earthquake reported near Berkeley early Thursday morning is the second tremblor to hit the area in the past 24 hours.

There have not been any reported damages.

The 3.6 magnitude earthquake had a depth of 5.6 miles. According to the USGS, the epicenter was three miles from Albany and 11 miles from San Francisco City Hall.

Another 4.7 magnitude earthquake shook the area bordering the California-Nevada border near Reno Wednesday evening.

Berkeley sits on top of the Hayward Fault Zone with a strike zone of 74 miles and runs through several densly-populated cities.
