A small earthquake rattled parts of Santa Rosa Monday evening.

The magnitude 2.7 tremor struck at 8:22 p.m. at a depth of about 3.4 miles, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Its epicenter was located on Santa Rosa’s Bicentennial Way near the Kaiser Permanente hospital, the geological website said.

Within 20 minutes, 165 people had reported to the website they had felt the quake.

It came two days after a magnitude 4.2 earthquake near the town of Aromas along the border of Monterey and San Benito counties that shook parts of the Bay Area.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, The Press Democrat 

Who calls the North Bay home and how do their backgrounds, socioeconomic status and other factors shape their experiences? What cultures, traditions and religions are celebrated where we live? These are the questions that drive me as I cover diversity, equity and inclusion in Sonoma County and beyond.
