Earthquake?

Either somebody just shook our apartment around, or that was an earthquake.

EDIT:

A 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck southern Iran near Bandar Abbas, site of a major Iranian oil refinery, the US Geological Service said.

The quake hit at 1100 GMT about 53 km west-southwest of Bandar Abbas at a depth of 55 km, the US agency said.

There were no immediate reports on damage, but residents in the United Arab Emirates, across the Gulf from Iran, reported feeling a slight tremor.
