That happened to me back in the day - it was the 1971 Sylmar, CA Quake -
I lived in Dana Point - woke up just before it struck - (and I am not a
morning person!) - 

Unfortunately - there are so few large quakes it's difficult to have any hypotheses tested with any type of frequency..  or maybe I should say fortunately..

Hi All,
I remember when I lived in Alaska and became introduced to earthquakes.  Several of us would talk about how we never seemed to be awakened by a quake.  It seemed we always would wake up and then the shaking would begin.  I don't recall any such feeling for awake time quakes but while sleeping there seemed to be something early enough to feel awake first.  It wasn't a special feeling like here comes a quake but clearly awake enough to be aware of waking first.  Has anyone else experienced something like that?  I've always attibuted it to the P wave.  It would have been fun to have a seismograph back then to correlate timing.
