Another First!

I have slept through several mild earthquakes in the past (including, from a great distance, the one that caused the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami). Tonight, I can finally say I FELT a quake - which turned out to be a magnitude 4.8 -centered west of Kangneung in Kangwon province, maybe 200 km east of Seoul. Lasted a couple of seconds and felt like a soft yet deep shudder, like you sometimes feel on an aircraft just after takeoff. Hopefully there was no damage to report out on the beautiful East Coast.
