In fact the 150th anniversary is coming up - we think that natural disaster was a magnitude 6.8 or so. Historically, about 5% of earthquakes are followed by larger ones. The USGS seismologists said that the quake had struck on the Hayward Fault near the Claremont Hotel.

Some people described feeling a "jolt" and then a "rolling" motion.
