According to the United States Geological Survey, an earthquake struck the Bay Area at about 9:26 Sunday night.
The USGS website warns that “Due to a lapse in Federal funding, the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program has suspended most of its operations. While the USGS will continue to monitor and report on earthquake activity, the accuracy or timeliness of some earthquake information products, as well as the availability or functionality of some web pages, could be affected by our reduced level of operation.” (Nor are they tweeting.)
That said, they report that tonight’s quake had a magnitude of 3.1, and struck an area about 2 miles northeast of Berkeley, with a depth of about 4.6 miles at its epicenter.
San Franciscans took to Twitter to report the quake, with users in Twin Peaks, Bernal Heights, the Mission, and Glen Park saying that they felt it.
At publication time, the USGS’ “Did You Feel It?” map (which is user-generated, and therefore has yet to topple due to the government shutdown) reports 741 responses to tonight’s quake.
I didn’t feel it myself, but I’m in the Outer Sunset. How about you?
