Hey, I lived in Whidbey Island (Oak Harbor) for a couple of years when I was a kid.

My mother mentioned something about an earthquake happening when we were there.

My sister and brother and I were probably making marks on the Richter scale with our roughhusing at the time, though, because I don't remember it.

I didn't feel this one from where I am. I must be too far away.

I didn't feel it at all here in Michigan. That's probably not normal if this island is in Lake Michigan. But I haven't a clue where Whiddby Island is located.

"my girlfriend at home on Camano felt it though."

I'd be worried if my girlfriend felt the earth move and I wasn't there.

Amazing how posters seem to think everyone knows exactly what state, city, county, rural area, mayor, city councilmen, subdivision, street, neighbor's name they live in as if we're psychic.

There, that's better. :-)

It's when you ARE there and the earth doesn't move that should worry you:-)

Notice the green shading on this map. The green signifies more a intense sensation of shaking than the location of the epicenter, the red star.

As of 8:00 a.m. 107 people have notified USGS that they felt the quake.

Thank you.... on the 2nd map I see that I am located at the 3:00 tip of the red star...out of the blue area. Interesting to be so close but not feel a thing!

Slept right through the thing. ....even though the epicenter was practically under my house. It would take at least a 5.0 to get my attention at that time of the morning.

Is anything less than a 5 even worth reporting?

In California, sometimes people are surprised by an intense yet small quake after earlier laughing off a larger quake.

It's partially due to depth, proximity to epicenter, composition of the ground, what kind of a quake it is, that is, what type of fault, etc.

Holy sh....

It appears I wasn't exaggerating about the epi being right under my house. The red star in the above map is actually covering my property.

"at the Renton Plant. I felt no shaking here."

Happens when everyone on break flushes at the same time; makes the building rumble.

That must have been rocking and rolling in your house.

The map looks like it must be a beautiful area. You are surrounded by water!

You guys have a charge number for Freeping?

My wife would have been leaving Camano about 6:00, she would have called if noticed anything.
