"I felt it" reports:
Mid-Norway / MMI IV (Light shaking): I woke up by a light but persistant rumbling, accompanied by an increase in the usual "hum" I hear almost every night. I instantly and intuitively realized I picked up on a distant earth quake. I must add I am a very open and intuitive person. Felt uneasy and dizzy afterwards, had trouble going back to sleep. The timing fits the Azores quake exactly.
