Reports from this earthquake
“Single boom with shaking for five seconds, followed by a second boom with shaking for another five seconds.”
“Felt like something hit just outside my house. Shook me sitting on my bed. Windows rattled. Very short but very intense. It reminded me of how it felt with the Northridge quake, except that it was short. (I was about 60 miles away from the epicenter of the Northridge quake when it happened!)”
