This happens every time there is a big quake, or a really deep one.
Yes...the earth DOES ring like a bell, after a large quake. The waves (P & S) travel around the globe. You don't feel it, but the seismometers are
sensitive enough to pick them up.
Think of it like a rock being thrown into the surface of a calm lake. You can see the ripples traveling out from the water, under the dock,but don't
The quake was the 7.2 centered in Pakistan, it affected seismos around the world, because that is what they do. Pretty cool stuff, but absolutely
nothing to worry about.
