Creek Running North
December 16, 2005
Just felt a good sharp jolt at 10:21, according to the clock on my computer here.
Update: It was close and small, a 3.4 with an epicenter about four miles away in Hercules.
I wonder which fault it was on. Don't know of one there. The Pinole fault is much closer to our house.

i moved from new england to chicago last year, and last summer there was actually a smallish earthquake around 1:00 am...i just happened to be awake watching tv, and the house shook, and i thought "that's weird - usually the central air isn't that loud." ha.Posted by: kate.d. at December 16, 2005 11:03 AM
Could be a rebound earthquake from the deglaciation.Posted by: biosparite at December 16, 2005 12:22 PM
The location of the quake doesn't have a fault running thru it, at least on the USGS map for it:
i love this site for its distinct ease of use in getting up to the second quake information
