Did you also feel the slight earthquake at 20.36 pm today?

I am in Geneva and I felt it. Thought it was a neighbor slamming a door as the building is not good quality. Until I saw discussion on the Internet and realized it was an earthquake.

No, I don't think I felt it but I am near Zurich.

I remember there was a small one here years ago that happened in the middle of the night. It was strong enough to wake me up, and at the time, it felt like someone had fallen onto my bed though no one was there. It was weird. And then the next morning, I learned from my friend that there had been an earthquake at that time.

As the epicentre was in Elm, Glarus, you were much closer to it than the OP!

I felt it but only for a second

I felt a small one a few years ago in vaud. Texted a few people, was told I was crazy

10 mins later it was online that there had been one

I think it's because I lived in California and had experienced them. I think most small ones are easy for folks to miss.

This always happens when the time changes. In this case we have the rural German Cantons catching up with the real world. (Spoken from behind the Röstigrabend)
