Two small earthquakes have rattled the San Francisco bay Area in the past twelve hours.

One temblor struck late Tuesday, with another occurring Wednesday morning.

The San Francisco Chronicles said both quakes registered a magnitude 3.6 and were centered a few miles northeast of San Leandro -- just south of Oakland -- along the Hayward Fault.

The U.S. Geological Survey said both tremors were widely felt throughout the Bay Area, but there have been no reports of major damage or injuries.

The quakes come on the heels of a 5.8 quake that struck the East Coast on Tuesday.
