Kaneohe Hawaii (334.2 km NW of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) / vibration and rolling / 2-5 s : I was sitting in bed with my feet up and my legs felt as if they were rocking. My body felt like it was rolling and I had thought it was a large truck or low flying aircraft passing closely to the house. It lasted about 5 seconds.
