  • Abbotsford - I was completely startled from it. Both my boyfriend and I are heavy sleepers and were woken up by the shaking of our bed and apartment. I could feel it was coming from down below. We are on the second floor of a 4 story apartment in Abbotsford BC near the Abbotsford hospital. It only lasted a few seconds, <5 and then there was a small after shock. I noticed other people in our building out on their decks wondering what happened as well.

  • Abbotsford - Was sleeping and woke up to my bed shaking blinds shaking a Big Bang
  • Abbotsford - On my bed watching a movie on Netflix and the building started shaking. Felt like maybe 10 seconds maybe a bit more. I went outside onto the balcony wondering if any of my neighbours felt it. There was nobody else outside, so I assumed nobody else was awake to feel it.

  • Abbotsford B.C. - Felt and heard a Boom thought someone had hit the house with an automobile

  • Abbotsford - I was awake watching TV just looked at the clock it was 12:45 am and a loud rumble shake/sway, ripple. I knew it was an earthquake. It only lasted about 3-5 seconds if that. Very noticeable, as it made me dizzy as I saw my bedroom room move. No damage in my apartment on the 2nd floor that I notice.
  • Abbotsford - Felt vibration and heard a rumbling noise. I have felt a 4 meg. And this did feel weaker more like a 2 meg. No damage . Lasted a 1 sec or 3.
  • Abbotsford - I was sitting up in bed at 12:45 am when I heard a loud bang and my room shook for about two seconds. I thought at first a car had driven into the side of my house - it was that type of impact. I did notice my books falling off my bookshelf and my ironing board fell over. All was quiet after that.
  • Abbotsford - Heard a very loud bang and then felt the house shake. Woke my husband and I up as we thought something might of hit the house. It was quite scary. Our house is 5000 sq feet with a steel roof so it's not exactly little and light. We are located right on the Sumas Washington border. After checking around came to the conclusion it must have been an earthquake. Good to be able to confirm.
  • Abbotsford - I was trying to tweeze an errant eyelash off and almost stabbed myself in the eyeball. It felt like somebody had driven into our garage and my mom thought a bomb went off. Saw our neighbor across the street exit his home and look around confused as well.

  • Abbotsford - Felt like something hit the house.

  • Abbotsford - I was woken up as I felt the bed shake. It felt like someone had pushed the back of the bed. I woke my husband to search the house for an intruder. He thought I was being silly. Feels good to be justified.

  • Abbotsford - i nwas scared
  • Chilliwack - Thought a tree hit my building. Looked outside and saw nothing. Sounded like a bang and then a small shake.
  • Abbotsford, BC - I'm living on the second floor of a three story apartment building. At 12:45 am I heard a sudden, violent "Bang!!" Simultaneously; it felt like a two thousand pound beast was running across the roof. Unusual; because the few quakes I've felt in my life (In Ottawa, Ontario) were just tremors.

      I felt it in Powhatan Va. it felt like a wave rolled under me and there was a loud boom like thunder.

      It would really be instructive if you could post a daily map of the world showing the places where earthquakes 5.0 on the Richter Scale and above were located and the time they were felt so we could see if there is some kind of trend developing in the tectonic plates.
