Video: USGS experts speak about 4.0 magnitude earthquake in Piedmont

OAKLAND (KRON) — The East Bay got a shaky wake-up call Monday morning, as a 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Piedmont.

There were no injures or major damage because of the quake. But it did cause delays on BART Monday morning.

The temblor hit along the Hayward fault line at 6:49 a.m. It is the second quake to hit this summer along the fault line that runs from the South Bay to Richmond. And it comes almost a year since the Napa Quake.

KRON4’s Dan Kerman spoke to experts at the USGS about the quake. They said the quake did nothing to strengthen or weaken the grim forecast of a major quake coming. And that is because the quake itself, and the seven aftershocks, were not big enough.
