3.6-magnitude quake shakes Bay Area Thursday morning

 

A 3.6-magnitude earthquake centered in Berkeley shook the Bay Area Thursday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was recorded at 5:36 a.m. 2 miles east of Berkeley with a depth of about 6 miles, according to the USGS.

The temblor was felt in Berkeley, Walnut Creek and throughout San Francisco.

"It was kind of a strong jolt," an employee at Au Coquelet Cafe Restaurant in downtown Berkeley said minutes after the quake.

I slept through this earthquake, but I know the Bay Area is having some kind of slow-moving swarm that releases tension and delays the "Big One."

Did anyone else feel it here in Danville?

@Lynn, there is no science whatsoever behind your assumption that the quakes we have been feeling release tension and delay a larger quake.

Aren't you violating terms of use by promoting your website and book on this forum? I have my own business as well (in fact, I serve caregivers) but I respect the terms of this forum and avoid promoting my company.
