1.9 km WSW of epicenter [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) : Awakened from sleep by the bed shaking. Heard minor rattling noises over the sound of a working tabletop fan. My impression was of a very short mild quake, but cannot be sure since I had been asleep.
San Francisco / not felt / single vertical bump / very short : I was awakened by a loud bang and shake. It felt like an earthquake as I have experienced them. I went online and saw that one had just happened in Kenwood. Not sure if this was what I felt, but I have no other explanation for it.
