I see they downgraded the quake to 5.2. I describe it as a "serious" quake 
in my first posting.  I suppose I based this on passed quakes in this 
locality which did not last as long. Certainly this lasted a lot longer. 
This one lasted at least 45 seconds e.g. felt for that long. We have lights 
on our desks that are suspended. The quake waves continued to vibrate for 
over two minutes. I used the word distortion of data. This quake was so 
strong and so close. If this were audio, I would describe the incoming data 
as being clipped. I saved six aftershocks out of maybe ten or more I 
considered significant. At least two were felt and reported by TV listeners 
as I watched my computer screen. Lehmans and AS-1 showed tendency toward 
peak in the .1 to .3 Hz range five minutes before quake on a relatively 
quiet display. And below .1 Hz just seconds before quake. Is that important?
