Talking I like earthquakes

That was fun. It wasn't very big but it lasted a while. US Geological Survey website says it was only 5.4 but it was just 8 miles (12km) below ground. That's why it felt so strong.

Too bad we don't get earthquakes where I live... Such a disapointment!

A Few Years Ago, Hot Springs NC Got One. We Did'nt Feel Anything Though.
Any Reports on injuries?

We get these wimpy little ones that make plates rattle, and that's it. Who knew that the river between Canada & NY was a fault line (St. Laurence, I believe) ??

I'm glad that you emerged unscathed, Ditroi!

We felt this one pretty strongly in San Diego. It was sort of fun.
