San Francisco Bay Area is shaken by an earthquake of magnitude 5.1

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake occurred at 11:42 a.m. local time, 4 miles beneath the surface, 12 miles east of San Jose. Southeast of downtown San Francisco, the area is located roughly 40 miles away.

Lucy Jones, a seismologist with the USGS, and other experts agree that the earthquake was the biggest the Bay Area had seen in a number of years. The most recent significant earthquake was a 6.0-magnitude one that occurred close to Napa in 2014.

According to Jones, the Calaveras fault, one of eight significant faults in the Bay Area and a branch of the San Andreas fault line, was the epicenter of the earthquake.

Smaller earthquakes frequently occur along the Calaveras fault, according to Jones.

The Monterey office of the National Weather Service reported feeling some shaking. According to tweets from BART and Caltrain, trains temporarily stopped running before restarting at slower speeds.

There have been no substantial reports of damage following the earthquake, according to Santa Cruz County's tweet. According to the county, there was no damage to the schools, and classes may resume without risk.

According to the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, or Cal OES, nearly 100,000 people reported receiving a warning before the shaking began through the state's earthquake early warning system.

According to the organization, the advance warning time ranged from two seconds for people in close proximity to the epicenter to 18 seconds for people in San Francisco.

Mayor of the nearby city of Morgan Hill, Rich Constantine, claimed to have been in his kitchen when the "long and steady" earthquake struck.

Everything was trembling as a frame in the house fell, but once it stopped, there was no damage, the man claimed.

About 5 minutes after the original earthquake, a 3.1 aftershock occurred, according to USGS.

The earthquake on Tuesday happened just one week after the 33rd anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, a magnitude 6.9 quake that rocked the Santa Cruz Mountains on Oct. 17, 1989, just as the World Series was set to begin in San Francisco. The earthquake killed 62 people and cost billions of dollars in damage.
