Yup! The earth moved for me!!
Re opened for those of us who heard and felt it!!
I thought it was a late plane coming in low to land - loud rumbling that got louder. Not so much shaking here - the house just creaked once.
I was laying on the lounge watching TV and at first I thought it was a huge gust of wind, then I sat up and thought 'explosion' but by the time I stood up and the whole house was rumbling and windows shaking, I knew what it was. Then I had two kids freaking out, not to mention a husband stumbling (from a dead sleep) down the passage asking me What the Heck!?!?!?
My Facebook friends have joined 30 unique earthquake-related groups since it happened only an hour ago. Way overboard!
I know, there are hundreds of groups popping up every minute, it's kinda funny!
i knew it was coming, i woke up 30 secs before and ive been feeling wierd all arvo :S
hope all are ok
5AA (no I dont listen, just found it on a random forum) say it was 3.2 on the richtor scale.
EDIT: Justifier has found the official site and it is officially saying 3.9 now.
Felt it up here. Got the first rumble which felt like a strong gust of wind on the house or a large truck driving by, then a second or two of stronger shaking.
It was a tremor in the force, wasn't it?
I'm upstairs in a block of flats and our windows rattled and my couch moved! It scared me for a few minutes!! Adam said it was just the wind but I didn't think so cos our unit actually shook!! My first earthquake. Woo!!
My favourite web comic
I survied! I thought it was a train crash at th train station (as I work about it)
Tyken and I slept through it. Never knew it happened.
slept right through it we did!!
I was at a mate's band. Didn't hear or feel a thing.
I didn't notice my first earthquake in Japan either. No sense, no feeling I guess.
i slept right through it!
Go back to bed it wasn't even a 4.0
Yep, was awake having just relocated to the lounge due to my husbands snoring (he's got a cold) and then .....his cricket trophy fell off the wall unit! WE HAVE DAMAGE! LOL!!
The only damage was to my sleep patterns after being woken up at 2:22am.
Almost asleep and I heard/felt it. First coherent thought was "Plane crash?" then thunder . . .then no idea.
We slept right through it.
Same here, woke up around 1am to let dog out and then went back to sleep!!!
