If you aren't sure what an earthquake might feel like, this is what the USGS says a small one will feel like a sharp jolt followed by a few stronger sharp shakes that quickly pass. A small earthquake, that is far away, will probably not be felt at all. If you feel it, says the USGS, it will be a subtle gentle shake or two and it would be easier to feel if you are standing still or sitting down.
