Early morning Berkeley quake downgraded to Magnitude 4.4

A magnitude 4.4 natural disaster on the Hayward Fault jolted Bay Area residents out of bed early Thursday, but it appears to have done little damage.

No damage or injuries were immediately recorded.

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. The first data from the USGS measured the quake at Magnitude 4.7. Santa Cruz is about 84 miles away from the epicenter. "This natural disaster was right in the center of the Bay Area, and it was very widely felt throughout". "It's possible if the natural disaster is big enough".

"It was relatively deep for an quake on the Hayward Fault", Knudsen said.

Prabhu Ramamoorthy Indian accused of harassing Sleeping woman on US Plane
Both Ramamoorthy and his wife gave lengthier statements later indicating that the pill Ramamoorthy had taken was "plain Tylenol". Ramamoorthy's wife had at this point walked up to the back of the plane to inquire into the incident, the attendants added.

He also explained that scientists are concerned about that specific fault because it's "kind of overdue". Some earthquakes can be more than 350 miles deep in countries such as Fiji, according to USGS duty seismologist Robert Sanders.

Jack Boatwright, a geophysicist with the USGS Earthquake Science Center in Menlo Park, said the shaking from the quake "seemed a little weak, about half as strong as what you would expect". The trouble now though is that the population along the fault is 100 times larger, with an estimated two million people living directly on top of it.

The last time the fault produced a massive natural disaster was in 1868, when a 6.8-magnitude quake shook the region. The event was felt as far east as Sacramento and beyond San Jose, to the south of Berkeley. It's been 150 years since the last rupture.

"But aside from some broken knickknacks, California's Office of Emergency Services confirmed on social media that there were "no reports of damages from the region" - then playfully added: "#whatsshakincalifornia".
