    A 3.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of San Francisco Tuesday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey.

    Officials originally reported that the shaking measured up to a magnitude 3.2 quake. 

    The quake hit at 6:36 a.m. nearly seven miles south-southwest of Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, according to the USGS.

    Some people took to social media to report they felt shaking in places such as San Francisco and Pacifica. One person noted that the earthquake was "short and sweet" while someone else reported feeling a jolt before a couple seconds of rattling.

    The San Francisco Fire Department said they did not receive any calls about the earthquake immediately after it struck.
