I'm in the North Bay, in Marin. The epicenter was around Rohnert Park, on the Rodgers Creek fault, just north of me. So far, just reports of some broken windows near the epicenter. I was actually on APC when it hit. My keyboard started moving as I was answering a private message....it's now apparently been downgraded to 4.4....just hope it's not a foreshock!

By the way, I did my duty as a citizen living in an earthquake zone and went to USGS.gov (since I wasn't knocked offline) and gave them my response to the shaking. Both my oceanography and geology professors in college always encouraged us to do that, so we could help with their studies

I felt it too. Was actually at the beach throwing the football around with some friends. It was barely noticeable down here in SF. I hope everything is cool up north!
