Three small earthquakes, measuring a preliminary 2.7, 3.0 and 3.3 magnitude, struck northeast of San Jose Tuesday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quakes, centered near Calaveras Reservoir close to the Alameda-Santa Clara County border, hit at 8:16 a.m. 8:36 a.m. and 9:02 a.m., respectively.
