I live in south florida gulf coast and I felt a shaking but passed it off as the thunder, because I live in a trailer and it always makes my trailer sake, but it may or may not be what the others felt? Started thundering here around 1 pm EST.

I bet 30 Stars or Flags the big one is still to come for the area, that was just the teaser quake! Any takers, I will star your posts... 30 Stars if there isn't a larger more powerful quake in the next 2weeks in the DC area.
a little fanatical in your judgment wouldn't you say - not to mention your racial card played - your statement hurts my heart -

This is Gods way to show the white people that inhabit the region turn your wicked sinful ways. Or else expect a catastrophic event that will destroy everything.
You all have been warned. Stop sinning or else. Down with Greed. Down with Babylon . The whore of the World.

If a 5.9 can cause that kind of effect on the east coast bedrock....
What would a 7.0 or higher do?

I have to say it's kind of humorous to see peoples reactions to an earthquake in a region where they don't normally occur.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, experienced the North Ridge earthquake and all of the in-betweens. Seriously guys, it's not the end of the world - I laughed pretty damn hard when someone mentioned that it could be Elenin. There are faults everywhere in the U.S. and a decent sized earthquake is bound to happen at any given time. I remember when the massive Chile earthquake hit that I felt some tremors rock the house slightly, so yeah the distance of earthquakes can travel immensely and trigger movements in other fault lines. I mention this comment because I see that some people out in Ohio/New York are freaking out that they felt it being so far away.
It's all good in the hood people - I think the ATS community that are reporting they felt it are taking it more out of context than a non-ATS member would (You know what I mean lol).
I'll give a little tip on what my parents used to do to me when an earthquake struck. I was so terrified of earthquakes as a kid that they would shove a spoon full of sugar down my throat to calm me down.edit on 23-8-2011 by Clisen33 because: (no reason given)

You definitely have bigger things to worry about, not some 5.9 eq..... Are you on the war path of Irene?
