Nobody else was reacting. I felt the building shake. I didn't say anything because I thought I was going crazy.

It felt like being in a boat. Everything was swaying. Cars in the showroom were moving slowly, like when you're on the ferry.

I was sitting at my desk when my chair started to sway. The reception sitting ten feet away also felt it...At the same time, people from the second story offices came running down into the street.

My bed started shaking. Nothing was shaking on the walls. I had to ask my mom if she was moving something downstairs.
