I felt nothing downstairs in the kitchen (slightly distracted by a dozen different chores, though), but my son felt his bed shake upstairs. And my neighbours definitely felt it! (Chestnut Street/Chestnut Park)

Melrose "rocked". My dog was sound asleep and suddenly jumped up and started to bark. A couple of minutes later the house shook, and I heard a rumble outside.
