A small earthquake struck the area three miles southeast of Berkeley at 2:52 this afternoon.
According to a preliminary report from the USGS, the quake had a magnitude of 3.2, and a depth of 4 miles.
I didn’t feel it in the Outer Sunset, but Appeal reader Brad (who alerted us to the quake via text) says he felt in in Oakland, as did his dog, who is “not an earthquake fan.”
Commenter sunnysunset says she “felt it in Berkeley… my entire apartment/house rattled for a good 5 seconds. So much for taking a nap – earthquakes are the equivalent of taking 5 espresso shots in a row.”
BART trains were experiencing minor delays of less than 10 minutes across the system because of the quake, according to a dispatcher.
After an earthquake, the transit system holds its trains momentarily before allowing them to proceed to the next station in manual mode, the dispatch said.
Did you feel it? Let the USGS know if you did.
