when the quake hit. the epicenter in berkeley along the hayward fault underneath the hotel. the newsroom flooded with comments and calls. thankfully no major injury ohs damage. kristy smith in the san francisco with us. with you we begin with chief meteorologist. jeff ranieri. 4.4 but felt stronger and widespread. >> and there are reasons behind that. i was woken up this morning as well when the earthquake hit. and it was a really big shake. and a lot of movement that did feel stronger than that 4.4 this morning. as we mentioned it happened on the hayward fault. 1.8 miles east southeast of berkeley. the number one people so many people felt if was the fact it was shallow. only eight miles below the surface. in large part areas from santa rosa to san jose were able to
6:01 pm
feel the jolt and the back and forth shaking motion. and the number one reason reason is of course that it was shallow. but the second thing we look at is the shallow nature allows the primary and secondary energy waves to travel farther reaching more of the bay area. and that's why so many of us had the perceived notion that it was higher than 4.4 magnitude. let's look at the primary and secondary waves. primary waves usually arrives first hence the name. this travels lieu rock and water. that's what arrives in the big boom first experienced all the way down to san jose. we had reports of that. secondary wave that only travels through rock and soil. but that's where you get the back and forth motion. we had reports of that from the north bay down to the south bay. most of the bay area, bottom line, felt the p and s wave and due to the shallow nature.
6:02 pm
now it's simple to forget but always remember drop cover and hold. if you feel that big jolt first, the primary wave you may have time to seek shelter before the big shaking starts when a big earthquake hits. we are tracking more on a brand-new storm coming to the bay area in 15 minutes. >> see you then thank you very much. are you prepared for the next earthquake in do you have the earthquake kit? many people are asking that after the jolt. nbc bay area kristy smith joins from us san francisco where a lot of people are thinking about that earthquake kit. >> reporter: that's right, after what they went through. it's been described as a sharp jolt felt in different corners of the bay area. some folks telling us they couldn't go back to sleep right away and spent time reexamining the earthquake plans. from san francisco to san jose people are talking about the overnight earthquake that woke them up and rattled their nerves. >> i woke up, and hard shaking.
6:03 pm
i thought it was going to last a while. >> reporter: the 4.4 magnitude quake was centered in berkeley but felt across the bay area. san francisco's acting mayor called a press conference to rereassure people that after a check public safe and infrastructure was in good shape. she netted a surge of emergency calls. >> 120 calls in the first 0 minutes. a time that normally sees about 15. many just worned if it was a quake or reported alarms going off. they are remind first degree it isn't a real emergency they can call 311. >> we try to stress how important it is to keep a kit in the car, because you never know where you'll be. >> reporter: michael skyler is codesigner of disaster supply center in sand rafael. he said water warmth and food are at the top of the list. people want disaster
6:04 pm
preparedness kits more now. >> they start ordering kits and supplies. a lot of people don't know what to do. we try to tell them as much as we can about getting prepared. >> this woman bought two kits one for her car and home after a wakeup call she won't forget. >> we live right on the hayward fault in berkeley. and waking up at 2:38 this morning was enough to convince me. >> reporter: there are many types of kits available for the home or the car. and supplies available have kept pace with new technology. reporting live in san francisco, kristy smith, nbc bay area news. >> good reminder for everyone as you might know the hayward fault runs directly through memorial stadium on the cal kafrmz. about about five years ago the skaumd reopened after two years of retrofitting. after cracks were easily scene before it was renovated. by the way that renovation cost $30 oh million.
6:05 pm
let's look at the strongest earthquakes in recent memory. august august 2014, the napa quake. 6.0 magnitude. along the west napa fault. the biggest since 1989. dozens were injured. one person died. in october of 2007. a 5.6 shook the san jose area. it struck at 8:00 at night. and no major damage. and the largest still more destructive to date, the 1989 quake, magnitude 6.9 quake killed more than 60 people left thousands injured. and you were that shot be with the cypress freeway structure, part of the bay bridge collapsing. one of the viewers posted in video to twitter showing things knocked off shelves inside a safeway. that's the wrong video apparently. coming up in 25 minutes roz plater will continue the team coverage talking to the usgs about how being prepared, things you should do when the big one
6:06 pm
does hit. the other headlines this evening, marijuana is now legal as you know in california. but illegal in most of america. so what gives? the trump administration is cracking down. attorney general jeff sessions today removing an agreement which said federal agents would largely be allowed states -- states that had federal agents to largely regulate marijuana under their own laws. that's not happening now. robert handa joins us from san jose with the political power play. robert. >> reporter: that's right. . many many people here said they hoed legal sayingsization would end the federal scrutiny that's been on them. instead the attorney general is turning up the heat. >> well, it never a dull moment with in administration. >> reporter: there's been a steady stream of customers today at the harborside dispensary in san jose. but quite a change when the legalization went into effect. the same can be said for the
6:07 pm
celebratory mood as the customers heard about the renewed vow to enforce federal laws against marijuana by essentially encouraging local u.s. attorneys to prosecutor buyers and sellers. >> yes, i am. i'm concerned about just about everything mr. trump does. >> reporter: santa clara university law professor dave ball was public safety chair on the blue ribbon commission on marijuana law and policy. he says it's possible pennsylvania u.s. attorney could go after a big dispensary or grower as a message. >> don't rule out california as being a sight of some of that. remember oakland was one of the -- went after harborside dispensaries despite the fact that the city of oakland didn't want her to do that. >> reporter: but the target of the raid harborside owner steve deangelo says he thinks u.s. attorneys in california now have higher priorities. >> does it make sense to take the limited law enforcement dollars and go after cannabis at
6:08 pm
that time? i don't see any reasonably use attorney making that decision. >> people don't need to feel like they're criminals. >> reporter: there are definitely issues looming including the fact that the northern california u.s. attorney recently resigned to go into private practice. and that means the president and attorney general will help appoint his successor. live in san jose, robert handa, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, robert. bay area activists are furious about a uc berkeley student detained after viting his girlfriend last is saturday when they missed a turn and ended up at an immigration checkpoint. he was brought into the u.s. by his mother when he was a child from south america. he hoped to gain a path to citizenship through the daca programs. immigration activist the at cal got him an attorney and angry about delays in getting him his legal rights. >> he has the trite to a hearing, the right to post bond
6:09 pm
and be back at university in the next week. >> his attorney says he is being held by i.c.e. in san diego and has not received due process since he was detained for days and he is being held in an overcrowded holding cell and still has no court date. well new at 6:00, the kate steinle drama is not over. tomorrow the judge in the high-profile murder case could grant a new it trial based on the one count jose zarate was convicted of. some brock joins with us the new developments. and what does it all mean. >> reporter: what it means right now is the closer look at the jury instructions in this case and whether or not those instructions were adequate. the defense contends it's not. the jury was not briefed on transitory possession with, the idea that jose zarate had only briefly touched the weapon wouldn't constitute possession process. the documents were filed in
6:10 pm
court by the prosecution which buy rowe why they think the retrial would be bogus but many legal experts don't agree. the primary players will be back in court pleading their case. but this time it's not over the magnitude of the murder on san francisco's embarcadero but rather a single weapon possession charge for jose garcia zarate. here is his attorney three weeks ago. >> i think a properly instructed jury, whether in state court or federal court is going to find mr. garcia zarate not guilty. >> reporter: the defense filed for a retrial. though the people of the state of california pushed back. in a motion submitted this week, prosecutors kentd o contend a momentary possession instruction requires substantial evidence that the defendant did not intend to prevent law enforcement officials from seizing a firearm. zarate by his own admission tossed the weapon into the water. >> clearly he wasn't trying to assist law enforcement in recovering this weapon. >> right. >> the prosecution has a pinpoint here that this should
6:11 pm
negate any notion of transitory possession. >> what the prosecution has is theory if this trial moves anything it's that both the prosecution and defense had powerful theories. >> nbc legal analyst dean johnson says the judge is likely to keep the weapon possession conviction in place but he says expect the arguments over jury instructions to drag on. >> i think there is a real possibility that there is an instructional error in this case. and based on that, the new trial might be granted, more likely the new trial would be denied but this lays the groundwork for a strong appeal. >> reporter: now, last month we did speak with a juror in this case. and he told us, yeah, he was confused about instructions pertaining to possession. does the possession mean that zarate held it for a second, a while? they had no idea. if the conviction does stand tomorrow, there will be an appeal almost certainly be and the first direct court in san francisco. i can tell you we will be here
