Well, this morning we had the first earthquake that I felt here in the San Francisco bay area: a 4.0 earthquake with an epicenter about 11 miles from the house. The house definitely shook for about 2 seconds at 5:33am and seemed to move back and forth, north to south. At first there was some confusion as to where the epicenter actually was. One report from the USGA stated it was only 3 miles from the house.
I found a really cool Twitter account that reports earthquake data in real time from the USGA: the SF QuakeBot (@earthquakesSF). It’s a great way to get current info when you think, “Was that an… Yeah it was!”
