The screen door to my bedroom rattled incessantly for about 10-12 seconds during the 5:33 quake. I myself felt no shaking although the noise of the rattling awakened me.

I didn't feel or hear anything related to the second quake.

Didn't feel, or wake up.... via the earthquake
But guess we got one...perhaps it helps to lessen the tension in the ground.
