Big Bay Area quake felt locally

LAKEPORT – The largest earthquake to hit the Bay Area since the 6.9 Loma Prieta quake in 1989 hit the San Jose area Tuesday evening, and was reportedly felt by some county residents.


The 5.6-magnitude quake occurred at 8:04 p.m., according to the US Geological Survey.


Its epicenter was five miles north northeast of Alum Rock, approximately 9 miles northeast of San Jose City Hall, the US Geological Survey reported. The quake occurred at a depth of 5.7 miles.


The US Geological Survey had received 47,715 reports from people in 461 zip codes around the state who felt the quake.


Two reports were filed by Lakeport residents who felt the quake, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was reportedly felt in other areas of the North Coast, including Santa Rosa, Windsor, Guerneville Ukiah, Arcata and Eureka.
