Heard a very low boom and felt the ground shake up and down. My family who was inside said the house was shaking. Pretty crazy, it's blowing up on twitter. Seems people from all over the state felt it.

I wondered what was happening. I live in an apartment, and I couldn't imagine a neighbor causing that much shaking. It felt like I was about to fall through the floor.

I live in Genesee County.

I though something hit the side of our house.

Then the phone started ringing..........people wondered if their water wells where OK.

I felt it while I was in Detroit. It didn't seem that many of the neighbors noticed, though.
