I was just waking up and felt the house shake. I thought it was a passing truck in our neighborhood, but then I realized that I didn't hear the sound of a diesel or any other truck I've heard before. I then wondered if we just had an earthquake?
After taking a shower and turning on the news my suspicions were confirmed! I wonder what's the farthest anyone in our region felt the quake?
