    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!

    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.

    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.

    Almost asleep and I heard/felt it. First coherent thought was "Plane crash?" then thunder . . .then no idea.
