    It woke me up at exactly 5:14 am as I looked at the clock. I'm on the 14th floor of a high rise on the Malecon in Santo Domingo. Being from California though, I just turned over and went back to sleep. No big deal for an X Californian, just a mild tembler. We don't take notice until it gets above a 7.

    I did wake me up, but I did not know what it was. Dogs barked. I looked at the clock and it was 5:14 or so...


    My daughter is here showing off grandchild #13, Annester, 3 months....and she told me it was a quake. But just a sudden jolt. No aftershocks.

    Cheers,

    Most construction here won't survive a 7....so you'll be wide awake!
