  • Abbotsford - It shook me out of my sleep. As I tried to figure out if I dreamt it, my son burst in to see if I noticed it. It was kinda scary!

  • 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 - 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, BC - No damage but it felt like there was a nearby explosion. Floor and furniture shook and the blinds moved. We assumed later it wasn't an explosion because there were no sirens to follow. It only lasted a few seconds.
  • 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.

    2. Jeanne C. says:

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

    3. Tito Stevens says:

      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.

        Will put your request in our ToDo list - some new enhancements will be applied the coming weeks
