View Larger Map

No, those vibrations weren't everyone running out of the office simultaneously to hit up the food truck. The United States Geological Survey confirmed to SF Weekly that we were moments ago hit with a temblor. And, yes, today is the 105th anniversary of The Big One.

The hard-working folks at the USGS have pinpointed the 3.8 magnitude quake's epicenter as 12 miles south of City Hall, and eight and a half miles beneath the earth's surface. "It looks like it's near the San Andreas Fault and it occurred at 2:57 p.m. two miles southeast of Pacifica," says USGS spokeswoman Susan Garcia.

So far, 730 people from 137 zip codes have reported feeling the Not So Big One, Garcia notes.

That number will all but certainly head skyward as the day moves on.

Down in Mountain View it lasted a long time but wasn't very strong. My cats didn't even act weird.
