    A few small quakes believed to be aftershocks shook the East Bay Saturday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    A 2.8-magnitude quake struck at 12:06 a.m. and was followed by a 1.3-magnitude quake minutes later at 12:14 a.m.

    Another aftershock with a 2.5 magnitude struck shortly after. The temblor shook 2 miles east-southeast of Berkeley at 12:45 a.m. with a 4.9 depth, according to the survey.

    These aftershocks follow an earthquake Thursday at 2:41 p.m., which was recorded at 4.0 magnitude. A small 3.8-magnitude quake followed Thursday evening at 8:16 p.m., the USGS said.

    These earthquakes have been centered around Berkeley. Thursday's earthquake was along the Hayward Fault Line, according to the USGS.
