earthquake, i think if it had been live oakland may have received a couple of seconds warning and san francisco four or five seconds warning. >> reporter: so the shake alert system is still in beta testing mode. but in the future it could trigger automatic responses for systems like b.a.r.t. and cal trains. disclosing a sound that will automatically open the doors at fire stations. now we talked with folk this is morning who said the shaking seemed to go on for quite a while. >> and it shook a lot. it was largest one that we've felt lately. >> i was sleeping and it shook really -- it woke me up. >> reporter: a lot of folks say that is how they woke up this morning. usgs said this is a wake-up call and all of us and we should make sure we have our go bag ready and make sure we have copies of important documents and food and water. we do have resources on

we've had several aftershocks and there was even one right before that that was the 2.5 that happened at about 10 minutes before that shock was felt across the east bay and then once again the ones after that have been fairly weak. so we'll continue to monitor for that possible that we could see a little bit stronger going into the next several days. scott and laura. >> as we talk about earthquakes, good reminder, loma prieta was 30 years ago this week. we're covering it from all angles. tonight janelle wang speaks to people who lived in san francisco marina district which as you remember was overcome by flames after the quake. you could hear that story of people who stepped up to save their neighborhood tonight at 5:00 on television on our digital app and set your dvr. new details, the college admissions cheating scandal act ves felicity huffman has reported to an east bay prison to serve her sentence. let's go to melsa coloive outsin
