If you think you felt an earthquake at 7:05 p.m. in the Bay Area, you did. The U.S. Geological Survey reports that it was magnitude 3.6 tremor with an epicenter just outside the northwest Contra Costa County town of Hercules.

Note: The 3.6 shake was 65 minutes past the time, and much less Rapture-causing, than the earthquake predicted for this evening by radio evangelist Harold Camping.
