Quake hits San Francisco, shaking Berkeley awake

4.4 magnitude earthquake in Berkeley rattles Bay Area residents

An early morning, 4.4-magnitude natural disaster centered in Berkeley, California, rattled the California Bay Area on Thursday morning, jolting residents awake. CBS San Francisco reports the quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was felt throughout the East Bay, North Bay and San Francisco.

"It is centered on about a five-mile long section of the Hayward Fault that in the past 10 years has produced 30 earthquakes of magnitude between 3 and 4", he told CBS San Francisco.

Social media posts showed people were awakened some 40 miles to the north and south, but there were no immediate reports of major damage or injuries.

People as far as San Jose reported feeling the quake. The first data from the USGS measured the quake at Magnitude 4.7. Though the last big quake on the fault was a magnitude 7 in 1868, they are concerned about the recurrence rate which gauges how often you would expect a big natural disaster to happen on a given fault. In fact, the 150th anniversary is coming up, we think that quake was a magnitude 6.8 or so,"Knudson said".

An natural disaster early Thursday sent Californians in the Bay Area scrambling - for their phones to post on Twitter. The shaking was felt across the Bay Area.

"We know that it's ready [and] is capable of having another big quake at anytime", Tom Brocher, seismologist at the USGS, told Newsweek.
