As if this day couldn't get any more dramatic for the Bay Area, a modest — but detectable in San Francisco — tremor just rocked the South Bay, centered at Alum Rock, 12 miles east of San Jose. According to the USGS, it was a 4.4M quake — the epicenter appears very close to one that struck along the Hayward Fault almost exactly a month ago.

The quake struck at 5:53 p.m., and ABC 7 reports there were no immediate reports of injuries.

I felt it in central San Francisco, and Twitterers felt it as well.

Clearly some of these people don't have the same end-of-days feelings that I have had all day writing about the fires to our north, which are currently 0% contained, and have claimed 10 lives that we know of so far.
