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?
