Did you feel it?

There was an earthquake that hit the Bay Area at 2:41 p.m. Thursday.

Shaking was felt in the East Bay and in San Francisco.

USGS listed an initial magnitude of 4.2 and said it was near Berkeley. They brought that number down to 3.9 only 10 minutes later.

There were no reports of damage beyond some photos off the walls of Oakland Hills homes.

People at the Claremont hotel, which is near the epicenter, said they they felt a hard shake but had no damage.

NBC Bay Area reporter Jodi Hernandez said she was in her live truck when the earthquake hit and felt a strong jolt. Hernandez is in the Oakland Hills doing a story today on the 20 anniversary of the 1991 firestorm.
