Earthquake anyone here feel it?

A few minutes later my neighbor came by to ask if I felt the shaking as it woke him from sleep. He thought he may have been imagining it.
Checked online and found there had in fact been an earthquake centered in Virginia and it was felt here in the Albany, NY area.
It felt quite odd to have the building shaking with no sound or obvious reason. I have never experienced any sort of an earthquake before this.
Anyone else here feel it? I pray everyone is safe.

Thank you, trep! It was very minor. I am now reading that the quake here in upper NY was unrelated to the quake in Virginia.

My brother works in DC and says it was pretty scary. They had to evacuate their building but no one was hurt that he knows about. I'm glad that everyone is OK.
