Santa Barbara / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / single vertical bump / very short : I was resting, watching TV, but not asleep. I was on the second floor of my house. It felt like a big bump, as if something gigantic had fallen on the ground outside. There was one more big bump immediately after the first. I actually think there were three in all.
