The U.S. Geological Survey reported a magnitude-2.9 quake rattled at 5:33 a.m. about eight miles northeast of San Francisco in the city of El Cerrito. Then followed eight seconds later by a magnitude-4.0 earthquake a quarter-mile northeast. Both earthquakes had a depth of about 5 1/2 miles.

BART temporarily held back service to inspect the track but the train service quickly resumed.
