Jane from umm suqeim 1: I live in umm suqeim 1. My patio doors shook violently for a couple of seconds. This happened three times around 7.30 very scary!
Amanda Ellis from Umm Sequim: We heard two small shakes which made our very high glass doors wobble. The dog was very confused. Then we were all sitting in the kitchen and there was a large noise and the glass doors wobbled long enough for us all to look scared!
