Our whole building rocked for about twenty seconds. Felt like a large one somewhere near here but not centered here. My desk chair moved back and forth a few inches as the building rocked.

Not large enough to worry about, perhaps a 4 or so here. Usually when we rock that long though it is a bigger one within a couple of hundred miles.

5.2 magnitude 54 miles SW.

I'm fine. At that size all it does is rock the building like a boat and there will be no damage.

Oddly enough, one of the people I work with was talking all day yesterday about his premonition we would have a big one on the 28th. I think he has been watching to many disaster documentaries lately.

I just posted it on the Earthquake thread.
I was surprised that I didn't get my usual email notification for anything over a 5.0.
Glad you're ok.

Just curious - did you notice any strange animal behavior in the hours or minutes prior?
