A pair of earthquakes jolted East Bay residents Tuesday afternoon, raising concerns that more, bigger tremors are on the way, like the ones Southern California experienced two weeks ago.

A 4.3-magnitude quake struck between Blackhawk and Brentwood at 1:11 p.m., followed by a 3.5-magnitude shaker 13 minutes later, according to the United States Geological Survey.
