A magnitude 4.1 earthquake struck an area near Fremont this
morning, and was felt by many in Pleasanton.
A preliminary report by the U.S. Geological Survey stated that the earthquake struck around 2:41 a.m.
Social media lit up the screens immediately, with scores of comments by Pleasanton posters on Facebook.
The earthquake's epicenter was located just 1 mile north of
Fremont and 1 mile southeast of Union City, the USGS said.
Although there have been no reports of any injuries or damages in the affected areas, BART experienced major delays earlier this morning because of the earthquake.
Around 4:30 a.m., BART reported 30-minute delays, as trains
performed track inspections. Just before 5 a.m., all of the tracks had been inspected and trains returned to normal speed, BART officials said.
