[ laughter ] so seems like you need to get prepared.
this is always a good reminder. >> well, it's a good warning. [ pause ] >> when this happened, did you happen to go outside, talk to neighbors? >> no, i haven't done that. i think when you live in the bay area for a long time and you have been through earthquakes, this was scary because it felt bigger than 3.3 but, you know, you kind of are used to it. it's a way of life. so -- >> all right. elaine tanaka, thank you so much. glad there's no damage. >> okay. thanks a lot. >> yeah. bye-bye. >> no problem. thank you so much. and again, a 3.3 earthquake in the east bay. this is one mile southeast of el cerrito. fbi officials say the man who shot at members of congress during a gop baseball practice last week acted alone. investigators shared their findings during a news conference this morning. they also say james hodgkinson who was killed in a shootout with police last wednesday had no links to terrorism. representative steve scalise of louisiana was critically wounded in the shooting at

on september 9, 2010. pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno. the explosion and fire killed eight people. pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno.
while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno, that's why we're working every day to make pg&e the safest energy company in the nation.
a three-point- three earthquake in the east bay... one mile south- east of el cerrito. the earthquake struck right at noon. preliminary reports from u-s say the quake was a a 3.3 earthquake in the east bay one mile southeast of el cerrito. the earthquake struck around noon which was about 16 minutes ago. preliminary reports from usgs say the quake was 3.3. a mile south east of el cerrito. it was felt widely across the east bay communities of albany, kensington and berkeley. and several other callers telling us they felt it. we have diane bow on the phone right now. diane, you're in el cerrito? >> yes. i was in the h & r block building at the el cerrito plaza and i'm sitting at the desk and all of a sudden it felt like a freight train ran into the building, the
computers went shaking and it felt like whiplash and the sound was like a boom. like ears are still ringing from it. it was really bad. scary! >> you know, i bet it was scary. obviously, living in the bay area we're used to some of these tremors and, of course, -- >> yeah. >> some earthquakes but this sounds like it was strong. >> it was different. this was -- i was in all the earthquakes since 1981. i live in el sobrante hills but this one was like -- like -- like i said, the airwaves like it just, like, sucked the air right out of the building. and the sound was so bad. and the jolt felt like a freight train just ran into the building. so -- >> you talk about the jolts. anything falling? ng or >> no. actually the computer went at a 45-degree angle and straightened up and the tax
preparer her whole desk was shaking and it it seemed like her head was shaking like a doll in the back of a car. it was like whiplash. it was that severe or strong. that powerful. and when i heard it was only a 3.8, i was like oh, god! i was hoping this would be the big one and it would be over with. [ laughter ] >> but yeah. >> obviously because we talk about it so much, it's a 3.3. diane, we are very glad to hear you're okay and everything was all right in that office. >> oh, yeah. >> thanks so much. >> okay. >> thanks so much for sharing your story with us. we're going to talk to david swartz with usgs. we heard it was a 3.3 magnitude, right, david? >> that's correct. >> tell me what a 3.3 magnitude, what that, um, entails? we just talked to people who felt a lot of shaking. >> well, it turns out that the preliminary depth of the
earthquake was about 3 miles which is relatively shallow. and so 3.3 is really a pretty small event. if it occurred at 6 or 7 or 8 miles, it probably would hardly be felt but because of the shallowness, it -- it -- the shaking seemed stronger. but this is a pretty typical earthquake for that area. the event itself again preliminary location also puts it at that three miles to the west of the hayward fault. and yoknow, we'll just watch and see as additional information comes in and, you know, whether or not something else occurs. >> okay. david swartz of the usgs, thanks so much. >> sure. roberta, you're tracking this as well with usgs and this is a good time to remind everybody out there, we need to get our earthquake kits ready. >> we become lackadaisical,
don't we? we need our earthquake kits in our garage and be well prepared. and always have a plan when to check in with each other. the cell phones may go down so always have a plan. just to again repeat what they were saying at the usgs just moments ago, a very shallow earthquake. that's why it was felt by so many people. also, it was really centered around three different areas, one mile southeast of el cerrito, and then less than a mile from kensington, one mile north-northeast of albany and three miles from berkeley so it was widespread felt with this minor event. let's take a look at the bay towards the east bay where we had that little minor shaker. you know, this heat wave we're experiencing is far reaching now 118 in phoenix. coachella 119. 128 death valley. low clouds keeping the coast clear and cool. 64 there. just a shallow deck of clouds. but inland, bill moon says he is already up to 85 in orinda.
so there you have on our visible satellite-radar the clouds looking out from the golden gate bridge, winds have been increasing not so much in the hayward area but you see that 12-mile-per-hour wind in concord and 1313? that's significant because with that wind we keep the air quality moderate instead of unhealthy so it's not a "spare the air" day. dangerous heat through tomorrow. statewide, high pressure is contributing to record highs here. nevada and arizona pick city today if you want to beat the heat santa cruz at 76 degrees. but don't forget the sunblock. today around the state 107 state capital. 109 fresno. we're almost just as hot 104 tri-valley, 106 in throughout the delta. so this is why we have now the extension of the excessive heat warning in effect tonight through tomorrow. sun goes down at 8:35. we begin to co but just get kya 110. then 10 degrees are shaved off that temperature by friday
it was felt widely across the east bay communities of albany, kensington and berkeley. several callers telling us that they felt the shaking. we even had one caller say it felt like a freight train hit the building. at this time we haven't received reports of damage. the earthquake three miles west of the hayward fault. millions of people are experiencing heavy rain and dangerous flash flooding ahead of a major tropical storm along the u.s. gulf coast. cbs reporter don champion has a look from biloxi, mississippi. >> reporter: tropical storm cindy isn't expected to make landfall for another 24 hours. but the storm is alady drenching the gulf coast and whipping up winds. in georgia, heavy downpours caused flash flooding leaving people trapped. >> get in the car and drive out. >> reporter: the national weather service issued flash flood watches from southeast texas to florida. some areas could receive more
than a foot of rain. >> we are going to prepare for the worst. you know? in case we get that ten inches of rain, we'll have some flooding. >> reporter: this morning, a driver captured this waterspout in ocean springs, mississippi, another one was spotted near biloxi. cindy is expected to make landfall between southeast texas and southwest louisiana sometime tomorrow with the possible three-foot storm surge. in new orleans, crews trucked sandbags to flood-prone neighborhoods. louisiana's governor has already declared a state of emergency ahead of the storm. near the texas-louisiana border, vacationers are keeping a watchful eye on the approaching threat. >> we are just going to ride it out. we're going to see how everything goes. i think we'll be all right. >> reporter: officials believe cindy could have a major impact along 500 miles of the gulf coast. don champion, cbs news, blocks sir, mississippi. google wants to help you
