    Default Earthquake

    Anyone in VA? We're in Jersey and my house shook & swayed! What a wild experience, don't want to do it again!

    I'm in northern PA and sat and watched my house sway from side to side. I thought it was going to topple over into the street! We used to live in the Tidewater area of Virginia so are anxious to hear reports from there.

    I hope everyone is okay. I live in Canada but apparently the quake was felt here (mildly). I missed it (in the car?) but have a funny story. My husband hadn't been feeling well and lay down on the bed which started shaking and moving about (for more than 10 sec) and he thought "oh no, here we go, I must be having a veritigo attack" and got up to get his vertigo medication. He didn't know until I got home that there had been an earthquake. Hope no one was seriously hurt. Bunny

    News here in Maine is reporting people in southern Maine felt the quake. I'm pretty far north though, so I didn't feel anything. Good news is it looks like there are no serious injuries or fatalities anywhere.

    Everyone I know felt it in PA. I was driving and didn't feel it, but my kids all called telling me their experience with it. Sheesh, things sure are changing. Now we prepare for the hurricane up the east coast.

    Here in western NY, people say they felt it, I didn't. Which is ok with me, I have lived near San Francisco for two years, I've had all the earthquakes I will ever need.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
