A mild earthquake sent a seismic shudder across the East Bay Saturday afternoon, rating a modest 3.2 on U.S. Geological Survey seismometers. 

The quake, which hit at 3:30 p.m., was centered four miles beneath El Cerrito. 

The USGS website logged civilian reports of the quake from as far north as Santa Rosa, and as far east as Davis and Stockton, with reports also coming from as far south as La Honda. 

There were no reports of damage.
