  • 4.4 magnitude earthquake in Berkeley rattles Bay Area residents

The epicentre was in Berkeley along the notorious Hayward Fault, which runs from San Pablo Bay to Fremont, according to the United States Geological Survey.

No injuries or accidents were reported. The damage is expected to be minimal, but it occurred along the Hayward fault-one of the seven fault zones in the Bay Area, according to the USGS. While many were jolted out of their beds, there was no preliminary reports of damage.

At a Safeway in San Leandro, one person reported that the natural disaster had knocked down a ceiling panel and also shaken some items from the grocery store shelves.

The USGS website also said that people reported feeling the natural disaster 40 miles south in San Jose and there were no reported structural damages or injuries.

There were 34 accused in the case, out of which 11 died during the trial, while one turned CBI approver and admitted to the crime. The conviction in this case pertains to embezzling of more than Rs89 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.

The USGS placed the epicenter of the quake next to the Claremont Club and Spa in Berkeley.

"Just felt everything shake here in my house in SF and our building emergency alarm went off", someone wrote on Twitter. Don Drysdale, Spokesman for the California Geological Survey, discussed the current quake and what people should be aware of. A magnitude 6.8 quake occurred on October 21, 1868, and was known at the time as the "Great San Francisco natural disaster".

There hasn't been a major quake on the Hayward Fault in over 100 years. A 2003 report determined that the Hayward-Rodgers Creek fault system would produce at least a magnitude 6.7 quake in the next 30 years.

The quake is said to be associated with the Hayward fault, which aligns underneath the eastern side of the Bay area - from Hayward through Berkeley.
