The Earth moved for me!

I was up last night when I felt a wiggle underneath my chair. At first i thought it was those pesky downstairs neighbors' kids screwing around. But when I spoke to a couple of people today, they too felt the tremors.

So i decided to look it up on the net. No news about it on Google news, but when I checked the IRIS Seismic Monitor's website, sure enough, there was an earthquake!

The details were:
Latitude: 28.53
Longitude: 47.47
Magnitude: 4.7 (!!!)

Too close (and strong) for comfort!
