yeah it did, was at work on triage talking to an ambulance driver (he he paramedic) was a good one, the sort you hear before you feel it, always feel eery after one, they are very odd to feel coming from the UK.

Did make me think i should move from the beach, i live down near the sea front, will be under 10ft of water if the big one hits.
