@SaaSyStacy academics are usually at the forefront of information. do you recall the professor or the report’s name?
An hour after the Bay Area #earthquake hit 3km ESE of #Berkeley, we learned: (1) magnitudes are preliminary - being downgraded from 4.7 to 4.5, and possibly to 4.4, by USGS - & (2) Santa Cruz residents want to say “hey, I felt it, too!” see the periwinkle box in the Intensity Map
A working group found, in early 2000s, that the Hayward Fault is scheduled for a 6.7-magnitude earthquake within 30 years. The fault runs north/south in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. With that magnitude comes property damage and lives lost, most recently in 1868.
This morning’s 4.5-magnitude #earthquake isn’t an outlier. There were 12 quakes >=4.5 within 150 miles of the #BayArea over the past ten years, the largest being a 6.0 in South Napa (2014) and a 5.5 in the San Francisco Bay Area (2007).
A 4.5 magnitude #earthquake epicentered on the Hayward Fault Zone, just north of Ashby & Claremont Aves in Berkeley, has been felt across the #BayArea. 37.861°N 122.242°W
