A 4.4 magnitude earthquake shook the Bay Area at about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday seconds before a 3.9 tremor—and just a couple days after a 2.9 jolted the region.
It was also enough to trigger warnings from the ShakeAlert app, which sends notifications to subscribers about moderate-to-large earthquakes.
Almost as fast as the earth shuddered, “Earthquake Twitter” lit up in San Francisco and beyond.
“Rocked and rolled WAY longer than I care for,” @TheAuthorGuy wrote. “Hope everyone’s okay.”
About 760 Pacific Gas and Electric customers in Sonoma County lost power, according to the utility’s outage map.
The Santa Rosa Fire Department, meanwhile, said it responded to multiple reports of gas leaks, alarms sounding and stuck elevators—but no injuries.
