COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.,- Workers inside this building were left puzzled after the building shook two separate times. They say they initially thought they felt the effects of a sonic boom, but and never imagined it was related to that earthquake. Now, one woman we spoke to says, workers came out of their offices asking if everyone felt the shaking, and everyone did in fact feel it! She describes the moments as scary and says she can't believe we in Southwest Florida would experience something that happened in Cuba.

"it wasn't extreme but it was certainly enough to feel, nothing fell over or anything but it was definitely significant enough to feel," said Laura Farnsworth.

Now, Laura says one woman immediately called to check on her kids and Laura even called her husband to ask him if he felt the shaking. He jokingly told her, it was aliens. Tonight, people are making light of what they call a scary few seconds.
