    Definitely felt the building sway on that one. Site is saying a 4.2 now. Three more aftershocks down in the same area.

    strange. i live downtown in SF and didn’t feel a darn thing. i did feel the three earthquakes from berkeley several weeks ago.

    oooh, I should’ve taken a screencap when it read 4.4; didn’t know they changed their numbers post-quake. eeeenteresting…

    Felt swaying for about ten seconds… it went past “exciting” to “somewhat frightening”.

    I felt my building sway 3 or 4 times, only a few seconds. The cats did not even get disturbed from their slumber on the top of the couch. I’ve been refreshing the quake page. Looks like the count is 6 quakes down by Lafayette in the last hour!

    That was scary.

    Missed this one, thankfully. If you’re riding on the streets of SF, you can’t feel a thing, must be all the potholes…

    I definitely felt that one. I’m in the Inner Sunset, round 9th and Irving. Thought a skater smashed into the side of the house.

    what??? i can’t believe people in the sunset felt it but i didn’t. and i wasn’t even doing anything special at home, i’m usually quite aware of any minor shakes. maybe i just thought it was a truck rolling down folsom?

    Interesting. I was at a show at the Bill Graham Civic Aud and I don’t think a single person in the building knew that there was a quake.

    Lasted 12-15 seconds. A long roller, felt stronger than 4.2. Went to USGS site for information and to report my experience. The USGS compiles participants’ expereinces and translates that to a map showing the intensity of the quake in different areas.

    If you experienced major quakes from the past, including the 1989 Loma Prieta (oh, did I!) or 1994 Northridge, you can share your experience for those, as well.

    Yes.I was lying on the couch,watching Survivor,and then the pictures on my walls started shaking,etc.I live on lower Nob Hill,and this one felt stronger than a 4.2.It was the strongest one I have felt in awhile.I just hope we don’t have a bigger one on it’s way,and this was a precurser.We all live with some fear of something…look at the South with tornados and hurricanes,the Midwest with floods and dust storms,droughts,the East with hurricanes,snow storms,power outages,bitter cold.Let us just be grateful for every day we have in this Ca paradise.

    Hmm, this is a LOT of seismic activity over a period of just a few weeks. I’m hoping it’s a pressure-release situation, and these are REDUCING the odds of a Big One.

    I wonder if it ‘felt’ stronger than a 4.2 to people due to it’s duration? a longer rumble might feel more dramatic than a more significant, but quick, jolt.

    Oh come on now, there’s no proof the quakes are caused by human activity. Oh, wait….Wrong topic.

    This one was quite felt here in westadd. Even our dog reacted to this one, and usually he doesn’t.

    I hope it didn’t shake loose any more mud and boulders on telegraph hill.

    Also, here’s a uniquely bay area family activity – Gather around the computer, kids, lets reload the USGS web site and see how big this one was! :)
