Clovis ca (595.6 km NW of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 1-2 s : I felt a very subtle wavy type shake slow motion kinda. The space in the room blurred along with the shake unbelievable . I saw something uñexplainable. My eyes were not blurry . I saw an independant form that took shape and moved away and disappeared . I'm in shock. How can anyone see air? What was that? What does it have to do with earthquakes? Now I'm shaking. I need a nitro. Wow.jeeze. I can't even | One user found this interesting.

The cat came out of the closet and meowed at me, then within a minute if that, there it was. I went on your website. Then another, not an app like yours, but volcano erupted somewhere, but I just got to my friends house and I was so excited when I saw it, because they've been relentless all day!!!
