We've just had a significant EQ.
 
Time 5:00am Dec 11, 1999
Size: Don't know but the first I've felt here since I arrived in Victoria  BC.  If I were in Japan I'd say about a 4 or 4.3.
Sharp jolt and a 1 to 2 sec follow up roll.  Not much longer than 3 or 4 secs.  Waiting for aftershock if there is one.
 
Where is the EQ report page?  I thought I had it bnookmarked!
 
Anyone out there?
