    Comments

    1. Felt the quake here in NW Iowa...things hanging in house swayed...shade handles swaying, a wind chime inside house swayed for 15 minutes after initial quake. Haven't felt anything like this since the major Alaska quake in the '60's. This was strange...

    2. Megan Hull says:

      @ 11:26 A.M. I felt my bedroom on the 2nd floor shake, seemingly from side to side for a few seconds.

    3. I can't say I felt this quake. I I've in Milo MAINE, at precisely the same exact time I got woken up out of a dead sleep and thought my roof was caving in. My boys were still awake and it jumped them as well. I don't know where to go to report something I felt that's not on the charts, when I came here I seen this quake was 3 minutes before what I felt. Maybe I can be directed into the right direction as to where I go to report such an event. It lasted maybe 4-5 seconds after I awoke.. I was worried it was something else but after investigating my whole house, inside and out, I was determined it had to have been a quake. I have felt then in the past and my experience was about the same.
      Alan Willis, Milo MAINE 04463

    4. a little rumble then loud bang.

    5. Kristina Diekema says:

      Kalamazoo--- Our entire neighborhood shook. We thought a plane was crashing into our house. Our house shook for close to a minute, After the quake our walls reverberated for a minute. My son in law was sleeping in the basement and he thought that we were about to die. That was something I would rather not do again.. lol

    6. Loud, rumbling noise. Felt a rolling vibration.

    7. At 1:13AM 1/25/2013 felt shaking and everything on my walls rattled. Windows shook, and there was a slight sway of my building.
