I was in my room actually when I felt everything start to shake and generally freak out. First thought, maybe it was construction or a big truck passing by. It must have been a really humungous truck to make every part of my room and the top floor of the house shake like that. When it kept going, and when I looked out the window and didn’t see any trucks, that’s when I started getting a little concerned.
About an hour later I read on the internet that there was an earthquake. After I ruled out construction and trucks, I figured there was an earthquake. I think I might have felt a small tremor once years ago, but I knew earthquakes in the area happened. I never felt one that significant though. Exciting!
