The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. The quake, with a depth of about 7 miles, was centered about a mile north of Fremont, which is located about 35 miles southeast of San Francisco.
The quake comes about 11 months after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck the region in late August 2014. It was the largest quake to hit Northern California in a quarter-century. That quake killed one woman and injured hundreds of other people while causing about $400 million in property damage in Napa Valley.
