How do you have an earthquake when there's no fault line? I always assumed I'd never experience one.

How is it that a drizzle shuts down the 6 train for days but an earthquake causes no issues?

Felt it in DC - my work building evacuated. The epicenter is just miles from a nuclear plant (which is offline now).

I was outside having lunch and didn't feel or notice anything

Looks like an East Coast hurricane this weekend too. Good times.

I'm outside Boston and I was sitting in my cube at the time and felt a swaying. I'm on cold meds so I asked a coworker if she felt the swaying. She did. I felt better - kind of.

My facebook exploded. We've been amusing ourselves with the news coverage. Although, to be fair, we may be able to handle earthquakes but rain freaks us the hell out. So there's that.

I'm glad there doesn't appear to be any major damage or casualties. It just goes to show earthquakes can happen just about anywhere. Apparently the only state that has never recorded one is North Dakota.


As I said on facebook, it looks just like Southern California storm damage.

At least California has strict building codes compared to the east coast.
