    Yea, this building is old. If you get the right person running through the office it would probably feel the same. Its at the corner of Niagara St and River Rd.

    I have a little work for you, but I'll pm you when the time comes. The dsm may finally be road ready.

    laying on my couch, i felt the couch shake and my pictures on the wall shake, im like WTF so i go look outside the window, just see people walking by. Thought it was the road construction right outside my house. didnt think it was an earthquake cus the cat was just chilling on his couch, and they say animals are sensitive to these things. lazy cat, LOL. Then my gf text me if i felt the earthquake. Im from Cali so im used to these, but its unexpected in the east coast

    We had a few semi strong ones out here on the Southeastern Coloraod/Northeastern New Mexico border. They say the east coast quake and these quakes aren't related, and that ours was from excessive drilling, and fracking, causing the tectonic plates to get "lubed up" and move around. I think they're lying though. The Flying Spaghetti Monster is about to re-emerge and take over again.

    On a serious note, it was strange. The ground didn't shake at my house, it vibrated like there was a huge compactor outside. Kinda cool actually. I'd definitely do it again LOL.

    Looks like it was a 5.8, 5 miles from Mineral, VA 3.7 miles deep.

    Last night there was a 5.3, 9 miles W-SW of Trinidad, Colorado.

    It's amazing how far reaching East coast quakes go.

    Mach V lost their phones for a few minutes.

    Sounds like everyone is ok :)

    It was a 5.9 in Mineral, Virginia. Between Charlottesville and Richmond. I live about 130 miles southeast of it in Roanoke, Virginia and I felt it twice. Although nothing happened, it was different to say the least.
