"A magnitude 3.2 event"

I heard the loud BOOM in my sleep but it wasn't enough to bring me to full consciousness. The bed shaking and cats flying in all directions got me to stir a bit and then Mrs. THC asked, "Was that an earthquake?"

The U.S. Geological Survey says it was a 3.2 and was located:

2 km (1 miles) NE (48 degrees) from Piedmont, CA
4 km (3 miles) NNE (14 degrees) from Oakland, CA
6 km (4 miles) E (93 degrees) from Emeryville, CA
19 km (12 miles) ENE (70 degrees) from San Francisco City Hall, CA

Gee, those are pretty much the directions to our house.
