An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 2.8 shook in Santa Clara County late Monday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake hit at 11:55 p.m. 5 miles east of the Alum Rock neighborhood of East San Jose in the Burnt Hills at a depth of nearly 4 miles, just north of the Joseph D. Grant County Park.
The temblor comes on the heals of two much larger quakes earlier Monday along the coast just south of the Monterey County line, the first of which was reportedly felt nearly 200 miles north in the Bay Area.
About 11 miles north of San Simeon, quakes of 4.7 and 3.6 magnitude hit five minutes apart beginning at 4:42 p.m. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, people as far north as San Francisco and the east bay reported feeling the larger of the two quakes.
