Bay Area quake shakes valley

The strongest earthquake to hit the San Francisco Bay Area since the devastating 1989 Loma Prieta quake rattled a wide area of Northern California on Tuesday night. In Modesto and surrounding valley towns, it made ceiling fans sway, sloshed water in sinks and added excitement to a Modesto Junior College class on earthquakes, where students rushed to see the seismograph.
