I was awake.
Heard it coming but not very loud compared to others I've heard in the past and felt it but seemed more of a quick shake. Didn't think it was a 4.0.

There was quite a swarm yesterday. My QuakeWatch app says 6 in the BVI/USVI area. I felt the one at 11 am, but none of the others.

Hmmm, and 7.0 earthquake today (Sat) in Japan and another 6.2 2 days ago. Coincidence?

USGS

It's a rare day when our region doesn't have at least one earthquake - we're on a major fault line - but most go unfelt and only recorded on seismographs. I remember that over 30 years ago a group of seismologists predicted a major earthquake here "in the next 10 years". Island time?

I get notices of earthquake activity thru USGS.
We go thru periods of swarms of activity from time to time, which we seem to be experiencing at present. The noise on hears just prior to an earthquake is the grinding of tectonic plates as they shift.
