Easily lasted a full minute....

Scared the living daylights out of me!!!

EVERYTHING in the house shook VIOLENTLY.

No obvious structural damage, yet.

Damn that freaked me out!

that's the thing with east coast quakes ... everything is pretty much bedrock ... so they're felt much farther away

a 5.8 here would feel akin to a much larger one in more sandy/loamy-based regions.

I was on the road at the time and felt/noticed nothing .... but once I got home our son came out asking,
So ... What was that shaking the house?

*damn.... i miss all the fun*


Hope everyone's fine and well ... after the fact.

Felt it in northeast Ohio near Youngstown. Chair and filing cabinets were wobbling slightly. Asked a co-worker said he thought it was just him!

Sorry guys

Not very fun is it

The only up side is you will feel very "alive" for the next couple days.

Those things jolt your senses to life in an instant

Be careful

Felt in central N.C.
First earthquake I've ever felt in my entire 24 years on this earth. Neat.

How dare this earthquake interrupt my studies though! Blast!
