Default Earth tremor/quake last night

Did anyone feel it? It happened approx 12:30am last night.

I'd not long been in bed when all of a sudden the bed was shaking, it lasted around 20 seconds.

Sky News just reported that there was a 7.4 quake in Pakistan - I guess we felt the ripples from that.

Funnily enough I was awoken at 12.30am but no idea why.

Yes I felt it- felt bigger than the last one- I was still up and felt my sofa swaying- didn't sleep under the door frame this time though! Is really is quite a bizarre feeling!

Yeah and I wondered what the hell was going on. It was some time after midnight but i wasn't too sure exactly what time. I just checked the time zones tho and everything would point to it being the earthquake that made me shake and not me being generally weird.
