Aloha, Washington, Oregon (2.4 km SW of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / rattling, vibrating / 10-15 s : Stronger than you'd think a 2-something would be, the kind of quake that only wakes up sensitive sleepers like me. Still terrifying though, and stronger than any other I've felt in years.  
Central Beaverton Oregon (4.3 km SSE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) / rattling, vibrating / 5-10 s : Windows rattled and building vibrated? felt like instant vertigo cause I was on my feet.  
Hillsboro or (8.6 km NNW of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 1-2 s : Sitting in living room
