Earthquake?

Anyone in Myrtle Beach now feel the earthquake? My sister in law is in Mt. Pleasant and said the coat hangers were moving in her daughter's closet. Several people in our town (90 minutes west of Albany, NY have reported feeling the shaking.

I was at the Charleston AFB. It was thundering and raining so hard I wouldn't have noticed if the earth was shaking. I'll let you know if we get any tremors. Oh, great, right?

I am in northern New Jersey just outside NYC.

At approximately 1:54 pm, our house "rolled" for about 15 seconds. The sensation was unmistakable. However, my husband, who is at work in a Manhattan office building, did not feel anything.

I told my friend in DC that it was mother nature's way of "shakin up" the politicians! Hope everyone is ok!

Mother Nature certainly does like to shake things up! Here we were worrying about a hurricane, so she reminds us that she as many talents.

I felt a very light tremor for a few seconds... all the way in Beaufort, a little over 400 miles from the epicenter.
