Who on the Eastern N.A. just felt that earthquake? And who here has experienced one?

OMG, we just had a 6.1 magnitude earthquake here in the east coast, so much trembling and shaking. It was centralized in a city about 45 minutes away, so we felt it huge, and it lasted for like 2-3 minutes. I thought the house was breaking apart :stupid: Never been through such a situation before. It was really weird, I was scared because I thought it was the house, but when I recognized it was an earthquake, it was fine. It makes me feel for people in countries where earthquakes are common.

Has anyone here been through an earthquake? If so, how did you react? Were you scared? Was there any damage to your house? Were their aftershockes?

EDIT: After reading it was felt in Chicago and Atlanta, I changed the thread title to Eastern North America.

The earthquake was felt from south Florida all the way to Detroit, NYC, Boston and Conneticut. Shit like this doesn't happen on the East coast, but at least now I can say I survived an earthquake :angel:

Oh well, back to my day now!

Didn't feel it in Toronto, but I was walking on a trek to find Toronto's best bagel. I did have my earbuds in though and was listening to Little Richard and "Whole lotta shakin' goin'' on'' at the time.

I experienced many tremors in the Caribbean. My philosophy was that if you didn't get wiped out in the initial shock, then it was going to be Ok. Enjoy the ride.

They were best when in bed and you could fully appreciate the waves.

Edit: CNN just said it was felt in Toronto. Too bad I missed it. I live in a high rise and my ceiling light sways with the building on windy days. I am sure it would have been a good seismometer too.

I live on a fault line, so I've felt a couple (but only light ones) :lol:

I slept throught the last major one (6.7 in 1994) but the epicenter is about 50 miles away from my home.

I was at a doctor's office and one of the doctors came in and asked if we had felt it because apparently he did. I didn't feel anything though here in South Carolina.

I live in the greater Philadelphia area, and I was sitting at the table and the whole thing started shaking for about 5 seconds or so.

It was very light, so it wasn't frightening or anything, but I had no idea what was causing it. My wife was also in the apartment but she did not notice it.

Are these intended as sex jokes or is my mind just in the gutter? ;)

Probably the latter.

buddyholly is right here. you can fully appreciate the wave in bed, feeling it shaking you back and forth in the same direction and the opposite direction as the direction the wave is moving.
by the way, buddyholly always sounds good but who has time to hear him?


as for cobalt60, i'm reasonably sure she cheerily presented us the funny side of sex.

Definitely did not feel it here in South Florida. Media exaggeration at its best.

I don't think Sue's post has anything to do with sex from what I know on her FB :p

Earthquakes are not predictable, so to use them as a sex toy one would need to be in a constant state of .................. readiness.

Oh, I felt it! It was like riding a wave up then back down. Kind of like a bumpy subway ride. I think I'm probably about 2 hours drive from the epicenter. I knew that's what it was, then my brain started thinking that was impossible and we were trying to figure out if the huge crane outside (lifting up massive air conditioning units to the top of the building) hit the building, but after running to that window to see, we knew that wasn't the case. The water in our water cooler had waves in it. We're on a fault line, so I knew an earthquake was possible and we've had a very small one (I didn't feel it) years ago, but I didn't expect to ever feel one here. Got everyone in the office a bit excited, that's for sure.

Well I don't presume to know you well enough, BH, to say with any confidence that you are not typically in said state of readiness.

In any case, I think that you may have just created an interesting new fetish.

Sex tourism in Thailand will plummet in favour of Japan and Chile.

Once at an airport.

Once at work.

If we stopped mining our glorious Mother Earth there wouldn't be huge holes under our feet and the earth wouldn't quake as much. :shrug:

I was sitting in the stands of Court 7 when the EQ hit. To put it mildly, the shaking was minor, and by the time everyone had figured out what happened, it was already over

Oh I felt it. I'm on the third floor of an older building and you definitely feel the swaying. I felt the one that happened last year, too. It was a few days before the G20. Everyone was already so tense, and then that.
