It's positively frightening to think about a largish, 6.5 or bigger earthquake hitting New York, Philly or Boston. It would be devastating because of the building codes. And it can happen.

sort of like how we giggle when warm weather cities shut down in sheer chaos after an inch of snow.

So many calm glasses of lemonade disturbed!

So many delicately arranged rows of dominos toppled before their time!

Our Boston office definitely felt it, from what they told me.

Up here in Portsmouth, NH, I didn't feel anything.

I was mildly amused/partially going "Oh you poor baby." until the last sentence, which just got kind of a response.

East Coast earthquake: Seismologist discusses - The Washington Post

Quote:

Q:QUAKE EFFECTS ON DC LANDMARKS
5.9 is a moderate quake but there a lot of historic buildings in the DC area - could this quake or aftershocks affect the buildings' structural integrity?

A.
DR. GRAHAM KENT :
I think certainly as you move closer to the epicenter, that's certainly true. There will be people inspecting various builidngs. I think the most important point in that regard, is that the Earth's crust is a lot colder there, so energy travels much further without being dissipated. Even though it's a 5.9, it's a lot bigger deal than a 5.9 would be in California or Nevada. You might see damage further away from the epicenter than you might expect.
and for those not on my fb, I felt it here in Atlanta.

My sister lives in Virginia about 60 miles from the epicenter. They had an aftershock a couple of hours later, too. She said it was difficult to walk in their house for a few seconds!

Apparently we had an earthquake 45 minutes ago. I didn't feel it.
