I heard a loud bang, and my house shook. I thought my roof was caving in. There was a smaller aftershock a few second later.
A few years ago, thinking 82 or so, there was a RI earthquake that interrupted a late night tippler. It felt like and sounded like someone had taken a huge hammer and hit a large boulder in the basement. Except the building was on a slab.
No aftershock, but it was my one and only "holy crap."
California was quiet the times I visited.
