    Felt this in South Rose Hill in Kirkland. Was sitting in a chair and the house started bouncing. All the glasses in our china hutch started clinking together! Hope we do not have another one!

    Woke me up this morning, fell back asleep. I wasn’t sure if it was an actual earthquake or if I imagined it and fell back asleep. I live in Redmond.
