There were no reports of damage or injuries from either quake.

The natural disaster struck about 10 miles southeast of Tres Pinos around 12:45 p.m., according to USGS.

An natural disaster with a preliminary magnitude of 4.7 struck in Northern California Tuesday, less than 24 hours after a 4.5-magnitude quake shook in the region.

The quake reportedly had a preliminary depth of about 9 miles underneath the surface.

In June, USGS reported a 4.0 quake was centered in Lake Erie, just north of Eastlake. Consider reporting what you felt to the USGS.

The aftershock forecasts by the USGS say residents should prepare for aftershocks in the coming weeks but there is just a 2 percent chance of any exceeding a magnitude of 4.5.

Per the Chronicle, and unlike Monday night's quake centered near Pleasant Hill, this one was located on the San Andreas Fault. More, but small damage, normally can occur with earthquakes of 4.1 to 4.7.

The last time there was a quake of any magnitude higher than 4.5 was in 2014, when a 6.0 magnitude natural disaster hit South Napa.
