Default Earthquake in San Jose

Did anyone feel it?
Hubbie just phoned from the city to see if i felt it, but felt nothing here, I guess as he is 5 floors up he noticed it more

Hope everyone is ok

It was pretty minor - only a 4.1 - bit of window rattling and lights swaying. We're still waiting for the "Big One" :-)

Didn't feel a thing I was in the Bay area this morning but I think I don't feel any of them when I'm driving.

I live in downtown San Jose on the top floor (5th floor) of a low rise and felt them both. This mornings quake shook the building pretty well but pretty minor compared to many other quakes in the bay area.

colleagues and I felt it on the ground floor of an office in Cupertino. Compared with quakes in places in Tokyo and Indonesia, this one was over quickly but quite violent: the building seemed to groan. We actually went out of the building for a minute or so...

If you ever feel an earthquake, the following site records the tremor within a couple of minutes.
