Hoping all in VA and surrounding areas are ok after the earthquake- We felt it here at work in Charleroi, PA 30 miles south of Pittsburgh and they are saying it could be felt as far as SC and NY....

Crazy!

I'm in North East SC and was standing on the golf course, I didn't feel a thing. Others here are saying they did.

I'm in northeastern Pa. I didn't feel it, but the dogs were playing and running all over the house so the house was a rumbling. My neighbor said they felt a rumble but thought it was her neighbor falling, so she checked on him. I'm going to call my brother and sister who both live in Va.

I was in Barrie when it happened, didn't feel it but some did...my cousin in Burlington said her desk was shaking at work.  It amazes me how far the tremors can be felt from the point of origin.  I hope everyone here was safe!

I was in the Bay Area when the last big one hit up there.  I was working at the vet's office, at work at the time.  The floor was literally rolling underneath us.  The dogs in the hospital were howling, I mean HOWLING all day long, and we couldn't get them to be quiet.  The cat I was holding at the precise time was meaner than sh.. and was trying to claw and bite his way out of my grip.  I had him on the exam table. When it hit, all of a sudden all the dogs were quiet.  You could've heard a pin drop, and the cat I was holding decided I was his best friend.  Now, when I notice the dogs acting very strange, I'm on alert.  They know something's up.

Wendy are you talking of the on in 89? My parents were in San Fran on a business trip and they were on the road that collapsed that same day before it hit. My Aunt was in the bathtub at the hotel when it hit and got sloshed right out and onto the bathroom floor. It was awful being here for 2 days and not knowing if they all were ok. They finally were able to evacuate and drove  to Lake Tahoe (i think) and they called us from a pay phone enroute to there.

I was at work in Detroit and we felt it here.  At first I thought I was still feeling the after effects of my weekend!  LOL  It was more of a swaying feeling as we're on the 19th floor and it lasted for less than a minute.  Very odd!!
