    I didn't feel it all, but my daughter says she did, and her boyfriend a couple of blocks down the road called to ask WTF?

    I may have been in the car at the time it happened though.

    I also felt a rumble all the way down here in KZN. It was just after I woke up and lying in bed.

    Then my wife slapped my like a German judo coach. She said I ate too much baked beans.

    slight rumble of the glasses in the kitchen but thats about it. If I did not hear the glasses tinkling I'd probably wouldn't even have noticed

    Yip. I thought I had made the coffee too strong. I was in the garage, doors rattled and the house shook.

    It was strange for sure, a distant rumble but came close in a second or two. Windows rattled in their panes for another sec or two and then gone.
