I'm sitting in my office in Waterbury and it felt like a piece of heavy equipment driving by.

What about you? Where are you and what did you feel?

Felt it here as well in Addison county..
Kind of felt like a crane was hooked onto the house yanking it.
Could have swore I felt one I think it was night before last, but guess no reports of anything.
Well at least it's not just me this time lol.

Hope they didn't have too much damage or any injuries up there.

Over the years I have experienced more tremors in Colorado and Vermont than I ever did when I was in California lol.

Was about the same here in ST J. Like a heavy-loaded truck driving by; or some joker nudging the back of my chair.

It was reported on the local radio station that it was a 5.5, epicenter just outside of Ottawa, Can. Seems along ways away to feel anything. People called in a spoke about seeing alot of squirrals going into a frenzy right before it hit. I suppose alot of animals who have a higher sensory level will be effected. Wasn't it elephants that sensed the tsunami in Indonesia before it was sighted.

I'm in Burlington and I didn't feel anything! I was taking a shower when my roommate rushed into the bathroom and shouted that his bed was shaking. I thought he was pulling a prank on me until some of my friends talked about it as well.
