Magnitude 2.9 quake rattles city from underneath Caldecott Tunnel

OAKLAND — An earthquake registering 2.9 magnitude rumbled the Oakland hills just outside the Caldecott Tunnel but did not leave any injuries or visible damage, the U.S. Geological Survey said Sunday.

According to the USGS, the quake struck at 10:31 p.m. at a depth of 6 miles, and was centered under westbound Highway 24 lanes west of the Caldecott Tunnel just before the turn-off ramp to southbound Highway 13 lanes.

A USGS map collecting residents’ quake assessments drew mostly responses close to Oakland and Berkeley, but ranged as far west as San Francisco and east as Martinez.

There were no reports of injuries, damage or other disruptions in the quake.

USGS scientists have predicted a 63 percent chance of a magnitude 6.7 or larger quake striking the Bay Area in the next 30 years.
