felt my first earthquake

#51813 2 years, 8 months ago
Sitting on my deck with my dogs and I was listing to the squirrels go nuts. Then my dogs started acting weird. Then my deck started shaking all my flower pots the windows and it lasted about a minute. It was pretty crazy to have that feeling here in virginia.

Yeah, I felt it in Pittsburgh as well. But it was a quick 15 - 30 seconds.

my first earthquake was 14 years ago i was pooping and everything started shaking i thought my dad was jumping around outside the bathroom or something...i went downstairs and my parents asked if i felt the earthquake and it was already on the news...nothing major at all, it was in upstate WNY, but quite an experience

That was my first earthquake -- here, about an hour outside Philly. Sitting here, watching CNN and poking around online, and the sofa begins to tremble. At first I thought it was one of the cats but when I turned around I saw the back dootr swinging on its hinges. Back and forth, back and forth. And that's when I knew what was going on. And right about then -- thankfully -- the trembling stopped.

I'm not particularly freaked. About six or seven years ago I was in a low grade tornado and that was far more unnerving. Still, I hope that's the limit to my earthquake experiences.

I felt the Quake here in Ohio at 12:55 PM yesterday
There have been a few Quakes around here that I can remember but they're always small
I can't imagine what a 7.5 or an 8.0 would be like, yesterday was only around 5.6
