I didn't feel it but the noise it made woke me up. I thought it was just a strong gust and went back to sleep. That was until my alarm went off and it was on the news.

Yeh, I felt it, it woke me up. It wasnt that bad for my house though, it only knocked over a DVD case that was propped up against some wood. Which was surprising considering how relatively close we were. There was more damage further away that there was for us xD (Im about 30miles from the epicenter ;) )
