At 2:29 p.m., a magnitude-3.5 earthquake struck San Francisco, according to reports by the U.S. Geological Survey. The epicenter was nine miles from San Francisco City Hall and three miles from Daly City.

This is the second earthquake in four weeks to hit San Francisco. The last earthquake residents felt was on the morning of June 28, when a 3.3 magnitude quake shook the city.

The quake originated off the coast of Northern California, near the same location as the previous earthquake, according to the USGS. San Francisco police said there have been no reports of damage or injuries.
