The quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was centered in Berkeley, according to USGS.

A spokesman for the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said there were no reports of harm to the region.

The people of Berkeley and nearby cities had awakened due to the severe shaking. According to the USGS website, people reported feeling the quake 40 miles south in San Jose.

One Twitter user posted a video showing an aisle in a Safeway grocery store in San Leandro, peppered with toiletries that had fallen to the ground.

The historic luxury hotel had no damage, an employee said, declining to give her name. The shaking was felt across the Bay Area. A magnitude 6.8 quake occurred on October 21, 1868, and was known at the time as the "Great San Francisco natural disaster".

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

The quake hit the San Francisco area about 2.40am local time (11.40pm NZT) and lasted about 10 seconds, causing a "little bit of rolling motion and a sharp jolt", NBC Bay Area Chief Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri wrote on Twitter.

He suggests residents go over their natural disaster plans with their families.

The quake was on the Hayward Fault, part of the San Andreas Fault. The last big natural disaster on the Hayward fault happened about 150 years ago, in 1868.

"The last big natural disaster on the Hayward fault happened about 150 years ago, in 1868". It wouldn't be a big surprise if we had a big quake on the Hayward Fault. Thirty people died then and there was extensive damage. This fault zone runs from San Pablo Bay in the north to Fremont in the south-passing through Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont.
