My apologies are in order then! I am very frazzled from being on the phone with the mother of my god children when the quake struck and the sounds of her terrified screams.
I apologize for mistaking your post as pro chemtrail. I was in error.

Did anybody's dog start to bark before the earthquake? What's weird is that our neighbor's dogs started to bark 10-15 seconds BEFORE the earthquake started.

I work at an environmental consulting firm, chock full of geologists, hydrogeos, etc. They said the fact that the east coast is mostly bedrock accounts for the fact it traveled so far. That, and the fact it was only 3.5 miles deep, versus twice that in Cali (typically). Rock is a great conducter versus a sandy/silty loam.
One odd footnote worth mentioning....
The people in my office that were standing did not notice the earthquake. I was sitting right next to someone standing, talking on their cell phone and I got up and started pushing him out of the aisle and he yelled "What are you doing??" lol
I wouldnt have thought there would be that much a difference depending on what position you were in. When we evacuated, most of the people were talking about just that.edit on 23-8-2011 by dtrock78 because: (no reason given)

The only time I ever felt like crap and vomited when I woke up is when I was pregnant. Its called morning sickness. I never heard of or ever had morning shock. What the hell is that. I get up at 4:30 or 5:00 every day.
Yes we all get headaches. I am pretty sure you're the cause of some too.

Is this the same one that was felt in kentucky, w. va., ny, nj, and tennessee? Everyone was asking me if I felt it.. I didn't. The lights apparently went out at my gf's college though.

Anybody know if earthquake damage is covered by insurance?edit on 23-8-2011 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)
Earthquake insurance is a form of property insurance that pays the policyholder in the event of an earthquake that causes damage to the property. Most ordinary homeowners insurance policies do not cover earthquake loss.
Act of God is a legal term for events outside of human control, such as sudden floods or other natural disasters, for which no one can be held responsible.
