Seismic activity of 30 second duration of 5.6 is a hell of a warning. Take heed, Franciscans and take all your breakables down, pack them in newspaper, then wait it out.

Close to the surface just 5.5 miles underground, long rolling motions. Felt really strange. 13 aftershocks, 5.6 magnitude, early estimates are that it is the Hayward fault. USGS says it is normal tectonic activity, not an indication of a big one around the corner.
No reports of any injuries or any significant damage, some breakage in stores, etc. Largest city nearby is San Jose.
Personally I think it was a reaction to the debate.

More aftershocks and more expected throughout the night; they are now saying it was the Calaveras fault which runs to the east of the Hayward fault also in a northerly direction. It's been more than 100 years since there was an earthquake this strong on this fault.

Well, I've lived in the Bay Area now for 8 months and I finally felt a quake. Although it wasn't really big up in North Bay, it was still interesting. Funny thing was I thought it was my cats running into the house for the first second or two until I could really feel it.

I know how you feel, man. Glad you rode it out.

Glad you are OK, Maine_Coon but if you were only there 14 years, you missed the big one, on October 17, 1989 at 5:17 pm

I didn't. I was living there back then, and just off work at 7th and Bryant, and when the ground roared up around me, and you could see the street turn into waves, as the phone poles shook crazily and the transformers on them all exploded, for about the first 10 seconds, I thought FOR SURE I would be killed, lurching in the street as if blind drunk.

AN Asst., SF District attorney I knew, had just bought wine and cheese on Chestnut St. in the Marina, and walked around the corner onto Fillmore street when it hit.

Before her very eyes, she saw her apartment (the one at the corner of Northpoint) collapse to the ground. She was damned lucky she wasn't in it, and had gone to get the wine and cheese first, on the way home.
