Earthquakes Shaken San Francisco Bay

Posted by Zotta Rendevouz


Two little, back-to-back earthquakes shaken San Francisco Bay place citizens alert Wednesday day but showed up to depart no serious harm or damage.

The U.S. Geological Study revealed that a magnitude-3.5 earth quake arranged at 5:33 a.m. about eight kilometers northeast of San Francisco in the town of El Cerrito. It was followed eight a few moments later by a magnitude-4.0 temblor, said geophysicist John Caruso. The USGS initially revealed that the first earth quake had a value of 2.9.

The moving was sensed within a 60-mile distance, from Santa Rosa in the northern to Santa Jackson in the southern region.

The Florida Freeway Patrol, San Francisco law enforcement and El Cerrito law enforcement said they didn't get any immediate reviews of harm or harm.

Bay Area commuter teaches were temporarily late after the earth quake to examine the paths.

Seismologists said the earth quake showed up to happen on the Hayward Mistake, a seismically dynamic wrong doing that operates along the southern San Francisco Bay. A 2003 USGS review said the Hayward Mistake had the best opportunity — 27 % — of generating a huge earth quake of magnitude-6.7 or greater in the Bay Area within 30 decades.

"We know that the Hayward Mistake is the really essential wrong doing in the Bay Area," USGS seismologist Mark Schwartz informed KGO-TV on Wednesday. "These earthquakes, these 4's, are just an indicator of continuous action, continuous pressure on the wrong doing. They do nothing to reduce the potential for something bigger occurring."

Overall, there was a 62 % possibility that the Bay Area would see a huge earth quake by 2032, according to the review.
