Earthquake in Berkeley

EarthquakeA 3.4 magnitude earthquake centered in Berkeley struck at 3:46 this afternoon. I was at the office during the quake, in a building which I suspect is not all that seismically sound. It only lasted a couple of seconds, but being on the second floor heightens the sensation a bit.

The quake was located in the same vicinity where a spate of other temblors occurred in late December.

I am sure being in your office building during a quake could be a little scary and sensational. I am sure any quake that can be felt can give a queasy feeling wherever you are. Will see if this one is a prelude for a few more 3’s like last time but hopefully nothing too much stronger.

Glad you are “safe and sound.” I can’t imagine feeling an earthquake.
