Strange here on Caswell at the mouth of the Cape Fear. Huge loud jolt but no shaking. Felt as if it was right here. Very familiar with the Seneca gun theory but this felt entirely different than anything I have experienced in my 20 years here.

The Seneca Gun "booms" are common... But they are typically just heard/felt along the coast. Even at my house, 1 mile inland, I've never heard them. The booms are also usually just in one particular area. Today's events have reports coming in from the Outer Banks down to the NC/SC line...
This isn't the same thing.

I'm in Ottawa Canada and was on skype with friends playing video games and at around 6:45 pm last night something I could only qualify as a small earthquake. The door to my room was closed and it was shaking violently.
I checked to see if there was a snowplowing machine in the streets and there wasn't. And no earthquakes reported. Asked my friends on skype and none of them had felt anything, one of them is about 35 miles from where I am.
I highly doubt it's related but I`ll put it out there for the record.

Just an example of a blast that was felt or at least reported over 170 miles away. Depending on the conditions it is very possible for a blast to be heard and felt at great distances. The way the OP describes it as having felt it then heard the boom even sounds like some type of blasting. There are many articles on this type of occurrence, and mostly in the east. I still wouldn't rule this option out.
Thousands of Marines stormed the beaches of Virginia and North Carolina last night in the largest amphibious training exercise for a decade.
Troops from the U.S., UK, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia took part in the massive military operation near Camp Lejeune, North Carolina and Virginia Beach.
