Having received note of a 5.0 in Hawaii, I read in the Hawaii Star Bulletin the following:
In Kailua-Kona, Mike Stanton said the quake was one of the most significant he had felt in recent memory.
“The house was moving,” Stanton said. “It made the lamps vibrate and it made small creaking noises.”
The vibrations awakened Stanton’s five cats, who remained alert long after the end of the quake — which he said lasted about 12 seconds.
In case you haven't noticed, I have been on a slight [working] vacation for a few days: I will return in a little less than a week, oh my mystery readers (if, in fact, you do exist.) Pax vobiscum.
