Moment California quake hits on home security cam

HERCULES, Calif. (CNN) — A 6.0-magnitude earthquake rattled northern California early Sunday. This is video is from a camera security system inside a home in Hercules — near Oakland. You can see the camera shake, hear items falling and breaking, and see people inside run for cover.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake epicenter struck about six miles southwest of Napa. At least five aftershocks followed. The quake damaged buildings and is being blamed for several fires across the region.

It was the strongest earthquake to hit the Bay area since 1989, when a quake struck during the World Series.
