The NWS tweeted almost immediately:

I am about to go to class at VIU but if you felt it and would like to share your story, please leave it here in the comments!  Sounds like tons of people felt it!

To put in an official report of feeling the shaking, which can be very useful for scientists, follow the link in this tweet.

  1. My Lazy Boy chair shook slightly, our antique piano clanged, and there were a couple of other small noises. My wife standing directly in front of where I was sitting heard the noises, but felt nothing through the floor.
