About an hour after the quake, San Francisco´s Department of Emergency Management sent a text to residents saying there was no tsunami warning.

USGS Geologist David Schwartz said the natural disaster struck in an area that has seen dozens of smaller quakes over the last decade.

The Hayward fault is the current fault with the highest probability of an natural disaster to happen, according to Drysdale.

"It's possible", he said of a bigger natural disaster occuring."[But] the chances of this quake foreshadowing a larger event, goes down quicker over time. The shaking was weak to light in most areas, according to the USGS as of Thursday morning. A magnitude 4.4 quake is a common size for the area, according to Baldwin. "We know from geologic excavations on this fault that big quakes happen every 150 years". The Hayward fault has previously been a source of concern for seismologists, as it is located directly below urban centers in the East Bay, including California Memorial Stadium.




In the South Bay, Chris Defayette said it was "a quick jolt". Roads, curbs and buildings are frequently offset from the "creeping". The last big quake occurred in 1868 so we are about at the 150-year anniversary ...

A buckled highway just outside of Napa, California, after natural disaster struck the area in the early hours of August 24, 2014. "If there isn't a large natural disaster in the next couple of the days the odds go down".

The last major quake along the Hayward fault happened in October of 1868, when a magnitude 6.8 hit the San Francisco Bay region, making it the most destructive natural disaster in the state's history. It killed 30 people, caused widespread destruction and was one of the most destructive in California history.

The quake was on the Hayward Fault, part of the San Andreas Fault.
