"I felt it" reports:
Chico CA / MMI II (Very weak shaking): No, I'm sure I felt an earthquake sometime close to midnight. It began very faint,as if a large truck with a silent motor was coming up my street but then it suddenly felt like a far away shaking for only a few seconds, maybe five seconds. But I've felt quite a few earthquakes in my life, at least 2 were 7. Something that I experienced living in southern California. This low faint shaking came from the earth beneath and I was sure I had felt a far away quake. ???
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
