Earthquake Strikes California Day After NY, NJ Rattled

A preliminary magnitude 3.4 earthquake shook the Bay Area Satruday morning — just a day after a temblor rocked the Big Apple, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The temblor struck Berkeley’s Garber Park at 11:22 a.m. and had a depth of 5.8 miles, USGS said.

Residents across Berkeley buzzed about the tremors, with others as far as San Jose, about 45 miles south, reported feeling the effects of the quake, according to USGS’ self-reported data map.

No serious damage or injuries were reported.

The earthquake occurred along the Hayward fault line, which extends 62 miles along the East Bay hills, according to USGS.

The last serious quake along the Hayward Fault line struck in 1868 and had a magnitude 6.8, killing 30 people.

Saturday’s earthquake in the Bay Area was much weaker than the magnitude 4.8 temblor that struck near Lebanon, NJ, Friday morning.

The rare East Coast quake — the strongest to hit the area since 1884 — rattled tristate residents, with many panicked locals rushing out of their homes and filling social media with shock.

Flights were grounded and traffic halted around New York City as a result of the earthquake, which was strong enough to cause the Statue of Liberty and chandeliers in City Hall to shake.

In the Garden State, nearly 30 aftershocks were recorded after the quake, including one tremor with a 3.8 magnitude.

    While the quake in both places was not monumental, I found it interesting that the two states in our union that are the most liberal in their governments are the ones hit. I used to think that CA and NY had to be a stench in the nostrils of God, but in truth, our entire country has forsaken Him. He must see the earth as a giant piece of decomposing flesh working alive with maggots. We are the maggots! I hope it all comes to an end with the Messiah establishing his reign as soon as possible!
