Ancaster ontario (5088.3 km ENE of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) : Very very slight shake around 5:00-5:30. Looked over to see if my wife was stirring...she was not. I thought that was weird...I wonder if it was an earthquake...then saw the news.
Anchorage, AK Hilton (244.1 km NE of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) : On 12th floor of hotel... Thought... "Here we go again..." But then nothing happened and I thought I was imagining it from last night because I didn't sleep well after the earthquake.
