M 6.1 Earthquake
6km NW of American Canyon, California
7 mins ago – U.S. Geological Survey
An earthquake with magnitude 6.1 occurred near American Canyon, CA at 10:20:44.00 UTC on Aug 24, 2014 ...

ETA 2: Can't sleep! Adrenaaaaline!!! Looks like Napa got hit pretty hard (at least one building down, several injuries, fire, wine flying off the store shelves), but the rest of the Bay is okay. Hope everyone in the Napa Valley and everywhere else are OK!
Behold this comment on the SF Gate's quake report. PILATES. I can only assume (and hope) this is satire.
Also, this bit of wisdom. Take note:
