A 6.5-magnitude earthquake was reported off the coast of Northern California on Thursday morning, rattling residents along the coast including in San Francisco.
No damage was reported in The City, however, according to Francis Zamora, a spokesperson for the Department of Emergency Management.
The quake occurred at about 6:50 a.m. off the coast of Humboldt County, but prompted delays of 10 minutes systemwide on BART as trains ran at reduced speeds as a precaution.
There is no tsunami threat as a result of the quake, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Zamora said the quake serves as a reminder to San Francisco residents to be prepared for a quake that hits closer to home.
“We live in earthquake country here in San Francisco, and there are very simple things [people] can to do to prepare,” Zamora said.
