The quake hit near Berkeley, California, as a magnitude 4.4.

The California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said there were no reports of damages from the region at this time. The USGS website said people reported feeling the quake about 40 miles south in San Jose.

The quake knocked items off the 24-hour Safeway's shelves in San Leandro. "This natural disaster was right in the center of the Bay Area, and it was very widely felt throughout".

Its last major natural disaster was a 6.8-magnitude quake, which occurred on October 21st, 1868, destroying downtown Hayward and killing five people, injuring 30.

"The real question is: is this a foreshock to something larger?"

In the past decade, there have been just four quakes about a four magnitude.

4.4 magnitude earthquake in Berkeley rattles Bay Area residents
Quake hits San Francisco, shaking Berkeley awake

At a Safeway in San Leandro, one person reported that the natural disaster had knocked down a ceiling panel and also shaken some items from the grocery store shelves.

The last major quake along the Hayward fault happened in October of 1868, when a magnitude 6.8 hit the San Francisco Bay region, making it the most destructive natural disaster in the state's history. It wouldn't be a big surprise if we had a big natural disaster on the Hayward Fault. "It may mean less likelihood of a larger natural disaster to follow".

The Hayward fault, attached to the larger San Andreas fault system, is one of the most feared in the Bay Area because it can produce a magnitude 7 or greater quake and it runs right though heavily populated towns.

"It was relatively deep for an quake on the Hayward Fault", Knudsen said.

The USGS calls the fault a "tectonic time bomb" which could "cause hundreds of deaths, leave thousands homeless and devastate the region's economy".
