(WPRI) — Even though the small 2.3 earthquake hit Rhode Island in the middle of the night, social media was buzzing with posts from residents who were wide awake.

Below is reaction from both Rhode Island and Massachusetts residents who said they felt the quake.

Some compared it to thunder, some said it sounded like a garbage truck, while others thought it was either their child falling out of bed and someone breaking into their home.

Our own Meteorologist TJ Del Santo said he felt the tremors while inside Eyewitness News’ studios.
