Earthquake rocks San Francisco area
GILROY, Calif. (AP) — An earthquake that was felt for 200 miles shook the San Francisco Bay area Monday night, strong enough to burst water pipes and rattle store shelves but not enough to distract hockey or baseball players.
There were no reports of injuries or significant damage from the quake, which was centered 35 miles south of San Jose just outside Gilroy. Authorities Tuesday were investigating whether the quake may have ruptured a gas line, sparking a fire that destroyed a home in San Jose. No one was injured.
The quake struck at 10 p.m. with a preliminary magnitude of 5.2, according to the U.S. Geological Service. Of several aftershocks, the largest was a 3.2.
It felt like a sharp jolt to Danny Sharma, a manager at Rodeway Inn in Gilroy. He said the motel shook violently and coffee pots and glasses fell off counters.
"It was the worst one I've ever felt," Sharma said. "The whole building was shaking and there was just this rumbling sound. It was a bad quake."
A water pipe supplying fire sprinklers broke over the menswear section at the Gilroy Wal-Mart, which was an hour from closing when the quake hit. Customers quickly left the store and more than a dozen ceiling tiles were knocked out. No one was hurt.
About a quarter inch of water covered about half the store and dozens of workers labored into the night to mop up the water and salvage merchandise.
The hockey game between the San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche didn't stop at the Compaq Center in San Jose, where the stands shook as the game was tied with nine minutes to go in the third period. The lights on an upper level catwalk kept shaking after the stadium settled down.
"I looked around, I said something wrong is going on here. Everything was shaking," said Michel Goulet, vice president of player personnel for the Avalanche. "You start thinking, 'Should I run or what?' I wasn't sure what to do."
Though photographers at ice level felt the quake, players on both teams said they didn't even realize there had been a quake until they came off the ice.
"I didn't feel anything. This building is pretty loud, so it's shaking anyway," said Colorado's Milan Hejduk.
Play also continued between the San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves in San Francisco's Pacific Bell Park, where the glass panes on the press box rattled for several seconds.
"I was sitting upstairs and it was a good jolt," fan Jenny Hsin said.
On the field the story was different. "I didn't notice anything," said Reggie Sanders, right fielder for the Giants.
After the ninth inning ended, the stadium sound system played Jerry Lee Lewis' Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On.
The USGS said weak to light trembling was measured for almost 200 miles north to south, from Carmel on the Pacific Coast up to Guerneville, a small town along the Russian River 148 miles north of the quake's epicenter.
The quake also was felt to the east, with weak shaking measured in Modesto and Turlock, and a slightly stronger shock measured about 80 miles east in Merced.
Gilroy, best known for its annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, which attracts 125,000 visitors, seemed mostly undisturbed. At a Lenox china outlet store, several broken plates littered the floor, and a few porcelain figurines in a window display had fallen.
Phone service was back to normal across the Bay area about half an hour after the quake. As a precaution, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system checked the tracks for damage.
