A 4.5 magnitude earthquake shook the Bay Area Monday night.

SAN FRANCISCO -- A 4.5 magnitude earthquake shook the Bay Area Monday night. USGS originally called it a 4.7 but later downgraded it to 4.5.

The USGS says it was centered in Pleasant Hill, Calif. The quake struck at 10:33 p.m. and was centered 2.2 miles north of Walnut Creek.

A 2.5 earthquake also hit the same area moments before the 4.5.

Police in Oakland, Pleasant Hill and Martinez said they've received no reports of any injuries or damage.

Several people felt the shaking throughout the East Bay and San Francisco and even in Santa Cruz.

No damage or injuries have been reported.

BART reported Monday night that they are running trains at reduced speeds while they inspect the tracks. The inspection caused some slight delays.

This earthquake comes just days before the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake.
