    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged.

    1. 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.

    2. Alan Willis says:

      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.

      a little rumble then loud bang.

    4. 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

    5. C Reese says:

      Loud, rumbling noise. Felt a rolling vibration.

    6. Jenny says:
