Yes, we felt it. Woke us both up. Just a little one, but the whole house shook. Fell right back to sleep!

I thought it was a truck going by at first. No big deal.

I'm in Sonoma (Fetters Hot Springs); I did not feel it, but the little beagle next door really started wailing exactly at this time.

Good Jolt and then rumble. Just the normal California Earthquake. Better than my alarm clock to get me up for the day. Only let's schedule tomorrow's quake for 6 am. Thanks.

We live in NE Santa Rosa and both my wife and I felt it. There was only a tiny bit of shaking, so we both rolled over and went back to sleep.

Yes, sitting at my PC, reading news around 5:19am, a sudden JOLT, very unexpected! Scary, we must all be prepared for the "big one"

It felt like a sudden jolt, followed by the sound of the ground trembling. Not very powerful after the initial, single jolt. Aside from catching me off-guard, there wasn't much to it...
