Chignik Bay, AK (95.8 km NNW of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) : Heard and felt, vibrations and slight side to side movement. Did not awake sleeping dogs. Person that has never felt an earthquake before asked if that was an earthquake, but did not need convincing that it was. Was also felt and recognized at the school. | 2 users found this interesting.
