Woke me up and scared the Cr*p out of me, but I just thought I'd had a nightmare until I heard the breakfast news.

Sorry - didn't feel a thing...

We heard about it on the news this morning. Strange how earthquakes are seemingly happening in unusual places of late...

I didnt hear it, I was fast asleep. But it woke someone up from work. They say we are going to get them alot more in next ten to twenty years, global warming they say.

There were a few of us in the hostel chill-out room at the basement. Nobody felt anything.

I heard about it on the news first thing yesterday morning - it was a bit pathetic actually. The news reporter was all like "Many were shaken from their beds in the middle of the night. But some householders are waking up to the harsher reality of this . . . " and the camera panned to a chimney stack which had fallen over.

To our Californian and Tokyo-ite friends - maybe you guys could learn a thing or too from us.

Nope, didn't feel a thing.
Mind you it was so small I could have made the earth move more
