    A magnitude 4.4 earthquake rattled northern Californians awake early Thursday as fire alarms sounded throughout the San Francisco Bay area and picture frames fell from walls and bookshelves.

    The earthquake hit the San Francisco area about 2:40 a.m. local time and lasted about 10 seconds, causing a “little bit of rolling motion and a sharp jolt,” NBC Bay Area Chief Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri wrote on Twitter.

    U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Robert Sanders said that there have been no reports of injuries or fatalities.

    10 seconds don't seem abnormal at all for the area, hopefully one with the epicenter under the governors mansion might do some good.

    It can be depending on how far and how deep the epicenter is from the downtown area.

    The thing i hate the most about earthquakes is when one starts, you never know how much intensity it will have or how long it will last. It can be a slow roll that keeps increasing or a quick sharp jolt. Every one is different and you are given no advance warning when it might hit.
