Sorry but I don't know how to insert a hyperlink yet so I cut and paste my comments from the thread referencing my own experiences with the strange
rumbling and shaking in the Northeastern section of the US. The thread was entitled "North NJ loud rumblings (3/10/2011)"

"I don't live too far from you OP - Rockland county right on the Bergen county line and I, too, have heard these rumblings on an off for the last
few days. The most recent was today around 3pm. I was sitting on my sofa, which is by a large bay of windows, and the rumbling started and the high
back of my sofa shook. The whole thing only lasted about 20 seconds but I couldn't pass it off as merely an airplane or truck because those
vibrations wouldn't have caused my sofa to shake. I'll try to be more aware over the next few days as I usually keep my windows open and as you can
tell from the timing of my post, I'm usually up most of the night." --- end of cut and paste.
Also, I'm almost at the point where I can start an original post but not quite there yet. Tonight, I felt two very quick but notifcable tremers
around 9:00 PM and when I looked out my window, which looks right across the Hudson River toward the Westchester, NY side, it was immersed in complete
blackness. I couldn't even see any bridge or car lights on the Tappan Zee bridge (TZB) and got so nervous that I called my ex who, hearing the panic
in my voice, first called my local police (no answer) and then the Tarrytown Police (right over the bridge) who said that everything was okay on their
end. I finally decided that I couldn't calm down until I had proof with my own eyes so I went out, got in my car, and drove down to the Riverfront.
Grantly, the fog over the water was extremely thick (as seen at the street lamps on my side of the river) but as hard as I strained to see anything on
the other side, standing right at the edge of the water, I couldn't see anything. There was nothing on the news which seemed bizarre until I heard
that the speed limit on the TZB had been reduced due to weather conditions. I have to say that I've lived here for a few years and though I've seen
some pretty strange weather anomonies (i.e. snow on one side of the bridge and sun on the other), I've never seen anything like this. The fog, which
I couldn't see over the water but surmised from the street lamps, was the thickest I have ever seen in my life, blocking out all light source.
I'm sure that I felt those slight tremors, as I'm very sensitive to them, and whereas I don't any question of any else's unique experiencea, does
anyone think that this could be a bit of low scale "mass hysteria" or paranoia from reading all of these threads? Just wondering if that's ever
gone through any else's mind or if anyone else felt faint but distinct tremors in the Rockland county, NY area this evening?
Peace and light,
