I was sitting in class with other students and everyone, including the instructor felt it. I think it was two jolts that lasted a couple of seconds, but at first we wondered if it was something else. Thank God it wasn't more intense.

I live in CM, it happened so quickly I thought it was my imagination. My stupid dogs didn't even notice. :\

I was laying in bed and it helped me decide to get out of bed. Just a minor shake and then a jolt a split second later in HB.

It didn't like a normal earthquake, but I definitely felt it.
