Aftershock shakes Bay Area today, estimated at 3.7

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 3.7 that hit 5 miles northeast of Alum Rock today was felt as far away as San Francisco, Pleasanton and Gilroy, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake occurred at approximately 3:54 p.m. and reports from the San Jose area said it was much shorter than the 5.6 earthquake that shook Alum Rock and the surrounding area at 8:04 p.m. Tuesday.

The 3.7 temblor was the largest of nearly 40 aftershocks that have occurred since Tuesday night's quake.
