Yes, I felt it. I'm from Puerto Rico. I was sitting in my desk, studying. Then, I felt my chair moving, and I saw the cables of the computer moving. I didn't know if it was real or not, so I look outside, and I saw people evacuating the building, so I did that too. But thank God, nothing happen. ☺ It was a little scary though.

Lawd, Barbados was real- in a panic..... One house in the Parish of St. George had de' back-half of their kitchen breakway- and fall down some hill... Some old water mains also leggo' and stuff too in Barbados....
My co-worker said her friend was in a Beauty salon at the time and she was in the chair getting her hair done. She say- next thing the girl in the chair start feeling her chair bouncing up and down and she start thinking wait, am I having a stroke??? Then she looked down at the floor and in the reflection she saw the ceiling fan rocking back and forth... It was then when she put two and two together and realized it wasn't her it had to be a quake....
A next friend was speeding down the highway during the quake.... He said next thing he started feeling the car rumbling up and down and he started thinking to himself wait- this car is driving very badly now, I need to go and carry it into the shop to get serviced. After that he hear on all the radio call in programmes that people was talking about earthshake...
Further, a next friend was walking down the street in Barbados... And next thing the quake start.... He start holding on to the telephone pole because he thought he was having a heart attack, but after he start holding on to the telephone pole now, he say- he feeling the telephone pole was rocking too and all the power lines start rocking.
Barbados ent' used to Earthquakes at all.... lol..... Some of these quake stories I hear had me rolling on de floor.
