A 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday evening, sending ripples of concern throughout the region. The quake, which occurred at 6:38 p.m., was located a few miles northeast of Millbrae, as confirmed by the U.S. Geological Survey. This seismic event followed closely on the heels of a 4.2 magnitude tremor that had rattled the area just over a week prior.

Despite the substantial magnitude, the San Francisco International Airport reported no disruptions to air travel, providing a sense of relief for travelers and authorities. However, precautionary measures were implemented by various Bay Area transit agencies, resulting in slight delays as safety checks were conducted on train and bus equipment.

Residents in the East Bay, including those in Antioch, reported feeling the tremors, highlighting the widespread impact of the earthquake. Posts on social media platforms such as X, formerly known as Twitter, captured the reactions of individuals who sensed the quake from varying distances, underscoring the reach of its effects.

As the community grappled with the aftermath, authorities remained vigilant, ensuring the safety and well-being of residents in the seismic-prone region.
