Apparently they felt the thing all the way up to Toronto and down to Florida. 8-o


I told my co-worker next to me to stop shaking my cube and he said "dude look outside" and i saw the cars rocking back and forth :-b

Some of my co-workers and I felt it in Stamford, CT today. My favorite quote was from my co-worker who is a hot chick with a filthy mind that I sit next to: "please, I have toys stronger than THAT".

As I was saying, nancy boys.

I'd be a lot more worried if the earthquake was a sharp jolt than a rolling wave-like motion. From the way some have described, it sounds like the latter. Keeping things in perspective, Northridge '94 was a sharp jolt and you can actually feel/see buildings tilted to one side during the shaking.

My sister who is about 35 weeks pregnant was about 10 miles from the epicenter. I only noticed the shaking down in Charlotte when my coworker mentioned it towards the tail end.

I'm 1/2 hour from Philly form work in some lame conference for work and we felt it. It felt like there was a rave on the floor beneath us the way it started moving. First earthquake for this guy, and I'm quite fine going back to Boston and not dealing with them again ;-D

bunch of nancies is right.. I'll take an earthquake over a tornado, anyday.

I saw an interesting theory the other day that said most of these quakes in the Eastern USA are actually the land still decompressing from the ice age, and not along active fault lines. The bed stone is cracked so it looks like small fault lines, but actually it's cracked from the massive amount of weight it had on it. Not true faults.
