I was reading a facebook entry of a few people in New Zealand who had a major earthquake a few months ago. The person I was chatting with said that another quake hit just a short time before. She said there was a rumbling sound just before the shaking began. She also told me that the quake woke her and her husband up the night before. I’ve only experience a small earth quake and it was scarry. I was amazed at her description and the affect it had on people.
