"I felt it" reports:
Metamora, IL / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I got vertigo when I woke up at about 6:45 am for no apparent reason. I surmised that there must have been a significant earthquake somewhere so I looked it up and there it was in Fiji! Weird I know, but I got terrible vertigo when the quakes in Japan happened and I did not figure out the connection until about the 3rd major aftershock.
