I felt and heard a bump here in Seattle while watching the original Star Trek on MeTV tonight because one of my tall antenna masts went THUMP and it was heard around the house. I went outside to check on it and it was ever so slightly swinging in the wind. I have my own weather station here http://www.dtvusaforum.com/content/649-weather-station-your-antenna-mast.html and it reported a peak wind of 14 mph, so I assumed that a gust of wind caused the noise and I dismissed it.



It turns out, there was a significant seismic event up in "The Great White North" (we tease Canadians that way) ... At the time of this writing, details are sketchy but the local ABC Affiliate link below provides some information.
