North Oakland / MMI IV (Light shaking)
San Francisco / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was sleeping when it happened at 4:43 am. It woke me up and my dad also felt it and asked me if I felt the quake and I went to check if my other sisters felt it too but they didn’t feel anything. It only last like a second.
southeast Berkeley (57 km N from epicenter) / MMI IV (Light shaking): woke everyone up, but lasted only a second. A jolt without rolling, but clearly an earthquake. It turns out that all of us separately sat in our beds wondering if this was a precursor to something more dramatic. But nothing followed and we sank back into our beds to dream our dreams of peace and contentment.
