Earthquake Bay Area: 3.9 Quake Rattles Bay Area

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (KGO) – A 3.9 greatness Earthquake Bay Area shook the San Francisco Bay Area Monday evening, as indicated by the USGS.

It was felt across the Bay Area from San Francisco to Castro Valley and a significant part of the East Bay.



The shudder was initially detailed as 4.2 in size, yet has since been minimized.

The shake was focused right outside of San Leandro, in Ashland, and struck around 6:30 p.m.

“It was practically similar to you could feel it coming,” said Vicky Esquivel, who was home staring at the TV in Hayward, around three miles from the focal point, when she felt a shock so solid she thought somebody ran into her home.

“With a major truck, not a vehicle! I felt like my home planned to tumble off the establishment. I was so frightened and afterward I just shouted and ran into the family room and my better half and I both took a gander at one another and said Earthquake Bay Area.”

Esquivel is a long-lasting Bay Area occupant and recollects the 1989 Loma Prieta shudder. “Normally you feel the shaking, this was entirely unexpected. So I keep thinking about whether the nearer you are to it, the more you will get that bang, rather than all the shaking.”

“It was uniquely around five miles down and to the extent earthquakes go, that is quite shallow,” said Robert de Groot, a researcher with the USGS Shake Alert undertaking, who added the tremor “brought about conceivable more noteworthy shaking all through the locale.”

De Groot saves five miles is about a large portion of the profundity of a normal California tremor, of which he says there are around 50 every day.

Kate Larsen: “Was there anything about this tremor that caused it to feel more like a shock than a rolling or a shaking?”

Robert de Groot: “Regularly if individuals are truly near where the Earthquake Bay Area source is, the focal point, then, at that point likely they feel everything occurring simultaneously.”

De Groot says BART, which ran its trains at diminished paces while they investigated tracks after Monday’s Earthquake Bay Area, is robotized through ShakeAlert for wellbeing activities.


BART said there was a 10-minute deferral in the travel framework because of the Earthquake Bay Area.

De Groot says that as of Monday night, there isn’t anything to demonstrate anything strange taking everything into account. He calls the 3.9 tremor “a regular California Earthquake Bay Area.”

Yet, de Groot says when you feel an Earthquake Bay Area, it’s anything but a decent suggestion to get arranged. he says there are four unique approaches to pursue ShakeAlerts on advanced cells – the remote crisis ready framework, Google alarms on Android telephones, and the MyShake and QuakeAlertUSA applications.

The San Francisco Fire Department says no wounds or harm have been accounted for.
