We certainly could sense it in San Francisco, anyway, but it definitely was smaller than what occurred on March 30, 2009. No reports of injuries or damage so far. See the deets below. It felt very small in San Francisco. It felt “short and sharp” to those a mile away from the epicenter in the East Bay. At least one “weenie Texan” transplant “thought it was a five.” And Commenter Jane says “It felt like a big truck drove up the street in Point Richmond.”
Those in the State Building in San Francisco’s Civic Center probably didn’t feel a thing. Mayor Gavin Newsom would probably like to remind you about upgrading your “soft story” structure. And good thing City Attorney Dennis Herrera is Suing for Seismic Safety Upgrades at the Mirant Power Plant, right?
