Three earthquakes hit California's Bay Area on Saturday morning, all north of San Leandro near the Oakland Zoo.

The first 3.0 magnitude earthquake's epicenter was near Oakland Zoo in Knowland Park, being reported at 9:24 a.m.

The next two earthquakes – both 3.2 magnitude – hit shortly after 9:40 a.m. They were located southwest of the first earthquake but nearby.

Maps from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) pinpoint the locations where the earthquakes were reported.

No injuries or damage have been reported.

According to the Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale, a scale that measures the intensity of earthquakes, a 3 is considered "weak."

The USGS's website says that earthquakes in the 3 range can be felt, especially by people on upper floors of buildings, but many people do not recognize it as an earthquake.
