"I felt it" reports:
Huntersville, NC / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was asleep and was abruptly awoken by the house and bed shaking. I heard humming like semi trucks on the roads and a loud sound, but that doesn’t occur near or on our street. The shaking occurred for about 20-30 seconds. I was sort of alarmed so I wasn’t keeping good track of time so that is an estimate. I immediately thought the worst —that we had a missile attack due to ongoing problems with other countries or the better/desired option that it was an earthquake. Glad it was this!
