Did anyone else feel the 5.3 magnitude quake this morning at 11:28 AM?

The epicenter was about halfway between Trapper Creek and Willow, about 15 miles west of the Susitna River.

Tsunami message from WCATWC

I felt it near Settler's Bay for about 10 seconds. Just a slight rolling, not enough to move anything. Hanging objects swayed, and I could feel the floor rumble, but not anywhere strong enough to cause damage.

Hiya Glitch,
Good to hear you had no damage and all is well.
Just saw the quake report on the internet and US geological survey
was putting it at 5.7.

Husband was on a ladder putting up a light fixture, he felt it. I didn't but one of our ceiling lamps that hangs down was swaying a bit. Thank goodness that was it.

Highlandlady called and told me that some cd's feel off the shelf onto her and the whole house was swaying. Picture frames got crooked, weights on the cuKu were swinging. Got her pretty nauseated and the dogs hair on end.

Someone asked me if I felt it at work, but I was a little preoccupied and never felt it.

I am (was) a earthquake virgin, and I must say that was one wierd feeling. Took me a few seconds to register what had happend, and I also got a little nausea too. I was standing on a concrete floor and it felt like it just rolled. VERY odd feeling.

Speaking of Highland Lady, haven't seen her on here for quite a while now. How is she? Last night I felt the bed move just a bit so not sure but think there was a small one last night also. Did anyone else feel anything last night?
