It was just a small one. In California, its just enough to wake some people up. No damage, and from what I have heard, no one hurt.

no reports of injuries, just mild damage reported thus far.

it was pretty intense, magnitude 5.9 and only 3.7 miles (6 km) below the surface for why it was as intense as it was. plus they travel really far on the east coast (through the hard bedrock).

but it was located in a very rural area about 40 miles NW of richmond virginia which is mostly farmland so no big buildings to be damaged there. would have been a different story if centered under DC or NYC.

when we lived in VA between 1998-2003, we lived about 30 miles or so from this common hot spot. got to experience several ~3.0 earthquakes while living there. it was super cool! basically cool because no damage or loss of life. just vibrations and sounding like a truck going by only not with that coming and going part, but rather an abrupt start and stop.

do wish we still lived there so i could have experience it. i know most people sounded rather scared today (family and friends on FB) but as donna said, it was nothing as compared to what has happened in CA and other parts of the world.

Being a midwesterner I wasn't sure what was happening. First time I had ever felt one. It was a slow almost rocking sensation here in southeastern Ohio. It made things on the wall swing and rattle.

From what I am reading now, there were some injuries but no deaths.

I remember when the Loma Preta (spelling?) earthquake hit in the Bay area. My daughter had just given birth to my granddaughter the night before. She was up on the 5th floor, called us collect to cry over the phone that the hospital was swaying back and forth. I packed my little car with bottled water, flashlights and batteries, baby formula and anything else I thought they would need for bring home a baby to an apartment with no electricity. Got up early the next morning and drove the back ways down to San Jose to avoid all the bridges. What was usually a 3 hour drive took 5. By the time I got down there, the power was back on.

Good morning, my dear!

Indeed, we did feel the earthquake here in Toronto. Well, my sweetie did. He was at home and said his monitor started to sway about 4 inches in either direction, his chair moved, the pictures on the wall rattled. I didn't feel a thing here at the office, but it's a much newer construction. Apparently, there were reports of people feeling it as far as 2 hours north of the city.

I hope our KAers on the US eastern seaboard, closer to the epicentre, are all right. It's humbling to experience an earthquake when you aren't accustomed to them ... humbling being the very least reaction, of course.

Warm hugs,


Kat

Good morning Katrina.........Mig is 2 hours North this week...............thus logic dictates.......she is responsible, the villain methinks.
