Earthquake San Francisco, CA During Harbaugh 49ers Press Today – Bay Area. Today, Jim Harbaugh was hired by the San Francisco 49ers. During the press conference, there was a 4.1 magnitude earthquake in San Francisco, CA that occurred simultaneously. The Bay Area is known to have these types of earthquakes. No one at the conference felt the shake. However, many people are treating this as a sign from late Bill Walsh.

Bill Walsh, like Harbaugh, was a former Stanford Cardinal head coach. He too went on to coach the San Francisco 49ers. He had 10 glorious years with the 49ers, leading them to 3 Super Bowl victories with Joe Montana at the helm.

Harbaugh is seen to be the savior for the 49ers organization. The Niners was the most talented team out of the NFC West but failed to earn a playoff birth. This lead to the firing of head coach Mike Singletary. Harbaugh signed a 5 year, $25 million contract with the club. He and GM Trent Baalke will be in control of the team and they will work together to come up with the final 53 man roster.

UPDATE: 4.1-Magnitude Earthquake Felt Across Much of Bay Area

Did you feel that 'quake roll through Pacifica?

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.1 struck east of San Jose this afternoon and could be felt throughout much of the Bay Area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was reported at 4:10 p.m. in an area just south of Mt. Hamilton and 13 miles east-southeast of San Jose City Hall, according to the USGS.

The tremor had a depth of 4.4 miles, the USGS said.

People in the East Bay and San Francisco reported feeling the quake. BART briefly shut down service to check for damage from the temblor, but was back up and running within five or 10 minutes, a dispatcher said.

An employee at the Reid-Hillview Airport, the closest airport to the quake's epicenter, said operations were continuing as usual there.

"We felt it, but as far as we can tell, nothing fell down, and no aircraft were damaged or buildings were damaged," he said.

The owner of Ornamental Edibles, which sells vegetable seeds out of San Jose, felt it 5810 Killarney Circle.

"There was a little precursor, a little bit of a shake and then a jolt," store owner Pam Wiggitt said, adding that nothing was damaged and business wasn't interrupted.

"By the time we looked at each other it was almost over," said Margie King, owner of MK Technical Services, a staffing agency at 4349 San Felipe Road in San Jose.

San Francisco residents also felt the quake. "My cubicle was swaying and it took me a minute to realize it was not me or anyone walking by," said Pamela Ringer-Britz, a project manager at SFL Data at 100 California St.

"Everyone in my office felt it," she said.

A few aftershocks have been reported in the same location, including one with a preliminary magnitude of 2.6, according to the USGS.

The earthquake made the USGS's 2011 list of "significant earthquakes" coming in behind a 7.1 magnitude 'quake in Chile and a 7.0 magnitude 'quake in Argentina.

A spokeswoman for the Pacifica Police Department said it has not received any calls about the earthquake or regarding damage caused by the earthquake.
