Following a magnitude 5.1 earthquake that shook the Bay Area on Tuesday morning, officials reported that BART trains were delayed by several minutes.
BART tweeted the following at 12:21 PM: “All track inspections are finished at this time. No damage was discovered, and all services are satisfactory for everyday use. Recovery from the delay is ongoing. Currently, trains are running 3 to 18 minutes late.”
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake that struck at 11:42 a.m. in the hills east of San Jose just south of Mount Hamilton was felt all the way in Fairfield, Stockton, and Salinas. Fortunately, examinations revealed no damage to BART trains or track, according to the transit company.
