The Bay Area was rattled by a magnitude 4.5 earthquake centered in Walnut Creek just after 10:30 p.m.

The earthquake was not directly on top of any of the main Bay Area earthquake faults.

As of about 11 p.m., there were no reports of injuries or property damage related to the earthquake, according to Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

The earthquake occurred just three days before the 30th anniversary of the magnitude 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake, which killed 63 people in Northern California.  https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1989-10-18-mn-158-story.html
