Recent South Bay Earthquake

Felt like a 3.0 pointer here in North Beach, but too soon to tell I guess. Epicenter is south of San Jose. More info on the USGS site:
USGS Recent Earthquakes

Update: now they say 5.6.

    I was at the top of a 3 story building in GG Heights and the room shook for about 10 seconds, which is a very LONG quake.

    I’ve been through every quake since the one in March of ’56 and I thought this one was a major magnitude.

    Yeah I was on the second floor, and it seemed long. I got up, went to a doorway, and then it calmed down, but got more intense, so I moved again.

    I am in the Santa Cruz mountains and was inside. Ran outside. Things were swaying in my house.

    Yikes! When I reported this on the usgs site, it said I was giving it a III magnitude. I guess being 40-some odd miles away meant not that much swaying. As usual, the sounds freak me out more than the motions.

    Moderately strong rumbling near Cesar Chavez and Bryant St.s in SF, but not enough to get my butt off the couch.

    We lived in Fremont and felt our first earthquake. It was pretty long and felt like a 5.3.
