A small earthquake rattled Berkeley on Sunday night, perhaps for the first time since spring, according to U.S. Geological Survey reports.
The quake came just after 10:30 p.m. with an epicenter in Oakland not far from Lake Temescal and the Claremont neighborhood, which sits in Berkeley's southeastern corner.
The 2.9 magnitude earthquake had a depth of about 5.8 miles, according to the USGS, making it a shallow quake.
Many people in Berkeley said they felt it.
Others said it didn't cause much alarm.
Berkeley and the city's nearest East Bay neighbors have not experienced much earthquake activity this year, according to USGS reports.
In February, there were three small earthquakes — the largest measured magnitude 3.2 — in the San Leandro area.
In March, a magnitude 2.8 temblor struck in El Cerrito.
It then stayed quiet until September.
