A 4.0, shallow earthquake hit 13 miles north of San Francisco at 8:33 a.m. ET this morning. At this time, there are no reports of injury. I’ll have updates when available.

The USGS says the quake hit at 8:33 a.m. ET around El Cerrito, Calif., four miles from Berkeley and 10 miles from Oakland.

In the past 10 days, there have been two earthquakes magnitude 3.0 and greater centered nearby. Source: USA Today

  • Didn’t feel a thing up here in the mountains.

    • Didn’t know you were in that area Woodsterman. Those California mountains are a beautiful thing.

  • So you gonna blame the Democrats for this too?

    Your website is nothing but a hate mongering place for radical haters to spout and sponge more hate.

    • Rad, the only natural disaster I have blamed on Democrats is the aftermath of Katrina. You own it.

      As to hate mongering and radical haters, considering it’s coming from you, I’m obviously making progress.

        I didn’t know that the democrats were in charge in 2005…
        Like Pres Bush told his FEMA director, “You’re doin’ a heckuva job Brownie!”
        Interesting reading here:

        • Bud, there’s no reason to talk about Bush or Brownie. The Chocolate Mayor was in charge of saving people’s lives, getting busses to them to evacuate, to startle people into getting to safety. He did none of that. Yes, the article is a good one. Thanks for the link. The Corps of Engineers is egregious in their culpability as is FEMA – or whomever is responsible for the Billions given to the Corps over the years to fix the very areas that failed.

          Nevertheless, only none to few would have died if Nagin had done his job. Then only the Corps would be to blame, or FEMA, whichever had access to the Billions.
