Felt a Blast or like Earthquake in oerlikon

Hi, On Wednesday 21st October around afternoon 2 PM , I felt a earthquake kind of vibration (2 times ) when I am in office in Oerlikon , all my colleague said it may be a blast or a earthquake.At the same time my wife heard a blast like sound in Seebach. Anyone came across same ? Just to confirm what is that really !
