Did the earth move for you?

I guess there was a 5.6 earthquake up by Anatahan at 10:06 this morning. I didn't feel a thing in Garapan. Did anyone on Saipan or the other islands notice anything?

My power was off and I was just reading, so you'd think I'd notice.

bigsoxfan was admiring my earthquake widget so I scrolled down to check it out.

The USGS says it was 120 miles NE of Saipan about a marathon deep (26.6 miles)

Follow the link if you want to report your ride. I usually do if there's anything to say. Zero responses so far, so they'd be glad to hear from you.

UPDATE: Reported it anyway. 'Missed it' is as useful as any other answer. Hey, everyone in the Marianas wants to be a scientist. Here's your chance.

Didn't feel it hear but the usgs seemed to report it as just under Saipan. Glad to hear it was a non event, as there is enough on your plate these days.

If I was considering a comment, then I might start with; "I feel the earth move under my feet, I feel the sky come tumbling down" Probably, the most frequently quoted comment on the site.

Once I thought about writing that I smoked a cigarette afterward.

Too cliche' and not serious enough.
