Bay Area reacts to strong natural disaster

4.4 magnitude earthquake in Berkeley rattles Bay Area residents

The quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was centered in Berkeley, according to USGS. There are no reported injuries.

The Hayward Fault is capable of producing a 7-magnitude fault, which would have caused significantly more damage. "We will be monitoring any damage reports, and always be cautious of aftershocks".

The USGS acknowledged though that the natural disaster was relatively deep for a Hayward Fault quake.

The natural disaster shook for about five to 10 seconds, reported the Los Angeles Times, and an estimated 9.8 million people felt the quake. A USGS official said the possibility of this morning's natural disaster being a foreshock to a larger quake is only about 5 percent.

However, after the acquisition, the start-up would no longer offer Android and Free Starter services starting March 1. Stewart Butterfield has served as an advisor for the company, and Slack has become one of its more prominent clients.

The USGS website also said that people reported feeling the quake 40 miles south in San Jose and there were no reported structural damages or injuries. "We know from geologic excavations on this fault that big quakes happen every 150 years". The event was felt as far east as Sacramento and beyond San Jose, to the south of Berkeley. The shaking was felt across the Bay Area. In fact the 150th anniversary is coming up - we think that natural disaster was a magnitude 6.8 or so. It's been 150 years since the last rupture. "If there isn't a large quake in the next couple of the days the odds go down".

The 1868 quake was the 12th most lethal in California history, killing 30 people.

The quake appears to have happened on the Hayward Fault which is becoming due for a large natural disaster.

A spokesman for the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said there were no reports of harm to the region.
