7:00 am
kids toy have it so good. ok. [ male announcer ] the new weless receiver only from at&t. get u-vse tv for $25 a month with free hd for six months. at&t. this earthquake lasted eight, nine, ten, seconds. we have the latest. >> this shows you if this real clear. it is about a mile north. none of the information changed. 5:33 this morning is when it struck. a lot of folks felt it. it was on the fault. the next map shows you you that. there is the fault.
7:01 am
you can see it happen just on the north side of that fault line. it was felt pretty much bay area wide. it was the shake map. they provided it to give us a sense of how strongly it was felt and how far out from the epi center it was felt. a lot of rumbling that people felt. as you head out the color turns purplish which indicates weak sensations. 4.0 is a light quake. so it is a mile north of el cerrito. they weren't as widespread. it did get a will the of people in gear, especially mass transit who went to make sure everything was running all right. i don't think we are anticipating anything as far as morning commutes. let's get over to george in the
7:02 am
traffic center. >> thank you. there were delays while bart operated in manual mode. no damage was found. also when they reach a threshold of 4.0 or above has to have visual inspections. those have been accomplished. no damage has been found. public transit is back on time. here is a quick look around at traffic. the still not a bad drive on 80 westbound is moderate traffic conditions and a 22 minute drive time. south bay peninsula pretty light on the northway. no problems for you to be found there. >> all right. thanks a lot. we had jackie out live when the quake hit. let's go to him live. you still in berkeley? >> reporter: i am just a few miles from where it actually
7:03 am
hit. when it hit it is dark out and you immediately look up and you see everybody wake up. you could see the lights going on? >> i was actually sitting in the van right here in the kron 4 van. it was two shakes. it felt like that but only secs later you could feel the second shake. it was much stronger and lasted much longer. all in all somewhere between 10 to 12 seconds all in all. you could see the apartment buildings, you saw the lights all start to flip on. no mistaking what it was. i am on top of the hayward fault. it runs under memorial stadium. it is east of where i am. el cerrito is north of where i am. no mistakes what it was at that
7:04 am
point. i tried to get to the camera. the earthquake edged before i could -- ended before i could get video. i'm sure everybody in this area felt it. it would be hard to miss. let's put it that way. >> a lot of viewers saying two quakes. they listed as one. i am looking at the list and they are actually listing currently -- and by haven't confirmed this yet but they are listing two 4.0 earthquakes. one at a depth of the 8.8-miles and the other at 9.2. >> it felt like that jackie? >> reporter: definitely. it definitely felt like two separate situations, entities. it lasted three to four seconds for the first one. you felt the second one really shake. second one was more violent and
7:05 am
there was was no mistakes. the first one you felt like a train was going by, a cement truck. it was more of a rolling thing. the second one was a jolt. you could definitely instantly know you were in an earthquake. that one is more violent. it definitely felt like two separate entities to me. obviously u.s.g. s. would know. >> i'm with you. we are in the studio. i felt the same thing but i didn't felt an definite end. i thought is this still going, really? >> and this is automated. but they are listing one at 5:33 this morning and then 5:33 and 20 seconds as another 4.0. they are different depths.
7:06 am
right now 8.8 and 9.2-miles beneath el cerrito. >> can you give us any definite answers as to whether it was one or two? >> i am having trouble hearing you. i'll try and get through the static. that first earthquake that was reported was sort of a computer error which put it by tub ron and then quickly a note came out to disregard that. the actual location in el cerrito was put up onto the with web site. >> so you're saying it was definitely one? it felt like it was two or at least a long one that had different feelings to it. how do you explain what we felt
7:07 am
then? >> i can't -- i can't really explain what you felt. i don't know where you were. but we are really looking at the single earthquake which has now been followed by two small aftershocks. it appears to be directly on the hayward fault. in fact it sits at the mira vista golf course. this is a section of the hayward fault that over the past 15 or 20 years has produced a fair number of small earthquakes. they produced magnitude 3.9, 3.4. in many regards it is not -- in many regards it's business as usual but the point is that it
7:08 am
was on the hayward fault. that is really our primary concern in the bay area. >> i know i saw that same thing, the quake showed up and it disappeared. if you go on the map it is showing two 4.0s. one with a depth of 9.2, eight seconds apart. it is still on the web site? >> i'll have to really -- i'll have to really check that. but the message did come in that the first one was reviewed and deleted. >> so before i let you go then, i want to tell you, we felt something pretty strong. we heard something. it kind of revere baited and are there two different types of quakes where you have a sharp quick one versus what we felt this morning? >> a lot depends what you feel
7:09 am
depeppeds to -- depends what kind of building you're in, whether you're on sands and gravel or you're on rocks, how the building was constructed, the or enation is facing relative to the seismic delays. and a 4, it's a reasonable sizable earthquake it produces different types of seismic waves. this is the first one that comes out. it moves a little faster and moves things back and forth. there is an s-wave where the ground goes up and down and depending upon the difference in time that you feel those you feel different effects. you can feel different types of shaking from the same earthquake. >> which is why a lot of people felt two. >> very good. >> thank you for joining us

welcome back. we continue to cover the breaking news of the earthquake that happened at 5:33 this morning. it was a 4.0. we were on the air when it happened. >> we were. we felt it within seconds. >> if you listen you can hear the lights shaking above us. >> the u.s. auto makers will play a big part in saving you money. >> yeah, that's a big earthquake. that is long. it's still going. that was a good one. >> usually it takes two or three minutes before we get any confirmation. as far as the strength of this quake, but it was a good shaking of the lights. >> when was the last one in the
7:31 am
studio? >> it was stronger. >> strong er and longer. after it stopped shaking -- you can't see the lights. they were still weighing. ay sway -- swaying. of course, we'll be checking the usgs. that was the biggest one we felt in a long time here. >> biggest ever one in the years i've been here. >> absolutely. >> it showed a 4.3 but they revised it to a 4.0. >> exactly. there was a lot of lights hanging above our heads. >> actually our camera -- see those. >> those were all swaying back and forth. >> they were the size of two soccer balls, pretty big. 60 or 70 pounds. they rocked the last time we got a good quake, but this one really kept them swaying.
7:32 am
they are fixed with this heavy metal thing. they have safety cables on them. i don't know that they would come crashing down. >> not worth taking the chance. nine seconds . for us here in san francisco, it was more of a swaying motion, a lot of people near the center reported what they thought were two earthquakes, the jolt then the sways. we talked to the usgs and they described the p waive and s waive and that quick jolt that you get right away and then that's followed by the slow waiving we had afterwards. we talked with jack and we're going to talk to him now. >> it was not two. we're going the show you the excerpt in two minutes to explain. tell us what you saw and what happened. >> well, a couple things. first of all, i was here in berkeley off university, which is on top of the hayward felt. it was right under beneath the
7:33 am
memorial stadium -- underneath the memorial stadium. now, i did start to feel a shaking motion. actually i was inside of the van here. it felt like a truck going by. there was lots of trucking going by at that hour. i started to think, well, that felt like an earthquake but maybe it's just a truck. seconds later that's when the second blast really hit. it's when there was no mistaking what it was. i got up to grab my camera. at that point you guys were still on the air and you hadn't motioned it yet. it was a four second delay in berkeley and when you felt it across the bay in the studio. there was definite delay. that second blast was the one that really slammed it. the lights started flickering at these apartment buildings and i knew instantly there was an earthquake.
7:34 am
the second one was stronger and more violent than the first initial, as you called it the p waive. i was kind of struck by that delay from the time that i felt it here to the time you guys started talking about it back at the studio. >> you're right oven -- on the fault where it happened. you know, near the coast a lot of people feeling it as well. we talked with usgs acted -- about the soil and that makes a difference. softerer soil are going to feel -- softer soil are boeing to -- going to feel the shaking more. we saw responses around half-moon bay. >> so here is david explaining on how where you are depends on what you felt. >> what you feel depends to a
7:35 am
very large degree on what kind of a building you're in, what the soils are like, whether you're on sand and gravels or you're on rock, how the building was constructed, the orientation its facing relative to the direction of the waive and when we have an earthquake -- a 4 is a reasonable size earthquake. it's a different type of waive. there's a p waive, which is the first one that comes out, it moves faster, things back and forth and then there's an s waive where the ground goes up and down. depending upon the distance in time that you feel those, you feel different effects. you can feel different types of shaking from the same earthquake. >> so at point it was a slow rumble and then there was a lot of shaking, it seemed like it rumbled again and more shaking. it was really one long one. >> that's a 4.0 rand it -- and
7:36 am
it hit at 5:33 this morning. >> people are saying they felt it in san francisco as far south as highway ward and even redwood city. a -- hayward and even in redwood city. people are saying this earthquake definitely woke them up. this one is from movie ree maria she said her whole house shake. david said this quake woke me up, it lasted about 15 seconds and it was long enough for him to check on his other family members. other people are saying that's what i call a wake up call. we are hearing from people who felt it in napa. a lot of people are saying it felt like a rumbling and a shaking sound. they started to hear a shake around on their cabinets and on their dressers. we have a couple damage pictures that be
7:37 am
posted on our website. a good resource there is posted as far as what you need to know to get ready for an earthquake. this is always a good reminder to check on your emergency supply kit. we put a link there to help you know what you need to know to be ready, as far as water, food, important paperwork you should have with you. people are sending great pictures to our twitter. as i've been reading the comments this morning on our facebook fan page, make sure you like us, i could read one of your comments on the air. you can go to my facebook fan page because i am not the only one in the bay area who didn't feel this earthquake. people are sharing what we might have missed out on this morning. james is now in the weather center with more on this magnitude. here is the shake method. it does a good job of elevator straiting what -- of
7:38 am
illustrating what people felt. you can see just about every county in all quarters of the bay area felt it and reported back to the usgs. most felt it at just a light shaking. as you go out from the center it changes to weak. it was a light shaking, it was that initial jolt but the shaking they would consider light. that was a 4.0 quake. so that's the latest with it. no major damage and no injuries coming in. just real quickly, again, with the earthquake located just north of -- we'll get past this. we are seeing some dense fog out there. now, onto traffic with george. >> thanks, james. this looks to be a hot spot developing at the bay bridge in the westbound direction with a disabled vehicle on the upper deck.
7:39 am
it blocks wouven -- one of the right hand lanes. they believe that this big rig will be there for about another 20 minutes or so. you can see traffic is coming to a stop here at the bay bridge toll plaza. also at the san bridge, we saw traffic backing up in the westbound direction. this is a rare event. we haven't seen any problems reported. we'll check to see what the problem is, clearly something is wrong on 92 westbound. at the golden gait bridge with the -- gate bridge, with the low traffic flow, there is a fog advisory. we'll take a break at 7:39 in the kron special breaking news will continue when we return. look! here she comes!
