Nearly 10 Million Felt Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake That Shook Bay Area, USGS Says

An quake shook California's San Francisco Bay Area early on Thursday, waking many, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

At a press conference, USGS officials said there was a small probability that this quake was a fore shock and will be followed by a big natural disaster: "Looking historically. about 5% of the time earthquakes are followed by larger earthquakes", said USGS quake Science Center Deputy Director Keith Knudson.

But there's also a chance that this was a foreshock, a precursor to a larger quake.

The Hayward fault is the current fault with the highest probability of an quake to happen, according to Drysdale.

"It was relatively deep for an natural disaster on the Hayward Fault", Knudsen said. Don Drysdale, Spokesman for the California Geological Survey, discussed the current quake and what people should be aware of. Let us know on our Facebook page here. "So it's a hot spot along the fault, and today's natural disaster - this morning's quake - was the largest of that group". In fact, the 150th anniversary is coming up, we think that natural disaster was a magnitude 6.8 or so,"Knudson said". Early delays in train service were cleared up by 5:30 a.m., the agency said.
