Earthquake in NYC


August 23, 2011 by Darlene McC

I’m sure the world heard by now (or you noticed because most of you are on the Eastern sea board) but an earthquake hit and rumbled NYC today.  A bit of urban adventure!

Take part: if you felt it you should report it (other than on facebook and twitter).  I’ve heard conflicting reports on if it was centered in VA or Ottawa; but there was also a major quake in Colorado last night.  Precursors to a big one on the North American continent?

Update at 2:10: Looks like the USGS is saying it was Virginia, not Canada.  They’re also showing a small one upstate yesterday, that large on in Colorado, and a few small ones in the middle of the country.  Earthquake survival tips, just in case this is a warning shot 😉

Update at 2:20: Woah, didn’t expect so many hits.  Tell us where you were.  What were you doing and what did you feel?  Were you scared?  Was it weird?

My cats kinda freaked and I watched the curtains move.

Update at 2:30: Parts of the Pentagon, White House, and Capital were evacuated?  Really?

      What’d you see Joel? Just the feeling was scary? This is my 2nd earthquake (both in New York state) so it wasn’t quite as shocking for me.

        it’s not what i saw…. it’s what i felt. first i felt my chair shake, then my body, then i touched my desk and it was shaking. i went into my living room and i felt the floor shaking. i ran out of my apartment and into the street, where the sidewalk was trembling. then it stopped.

  2. […] is-a-coming and she’s going to clip New York City on the way by.  Yup, we’re getting an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week!  I know, I know… NYC gets everything all the time.  Just […]

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
