A 4.3-magnitude earthquake rattled the Bay Area on Tuesday. 

The United States Geological Survey said that the 1:11 p.m. quake was centered about 7.5 miles from the East Bay community of Blackhawk.

"It felt like someone picked up the entire house and shook it back and forth," said one woman in Antioch who called KCBS Radio.

A second earthquake, measuring 3.5, followed at 1:24 p.m. and was located in the same approximate area. 

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
