"It was weird, the whole house was shaking for I don't know maybe one minute. I didn't think it was too big because I thought there was maybe going to be some more!"

Ilia said no one in his family had been in an earthquake before so they were all awake and surprised.

Tell everyone I am fine, everything is okay. Thanks to everyone for asking."
