Earthquake? Twitter knows best

Our house shook for a good 20 seconds at about 12:56am – windows and all. I was awake, but it woke the cats and my better half who were sleeping upstairs. It didn’t set any car alarms off, so I’m guessing no real damage done.

I twittered first, but Nick beat me to the blog. Without twitter I’d have thought I was going mad, Nick confirmed it “podnosh mine too. 6M Ago” and:
orangejon wonders if he’s hallucinating or if there was really just an earthquake. Either that or the house is falling down… 5M Ago”

I wonder how you measure where the epi-centre might be?
