[at-l] I felt the earth move under my feet...

The seismometer on our farm in AL didn't register the ME earthquake.

 

It did register one in Guatemala with a strength of 5.5 so I  guess if you
had been there you would have really felt the earth move.

What a day!

 

Anyone else in the northeast feel the earthquake?  7:15ish pm, the house
shook.  I live in Medford, MA these days, about five miles north of Boston.
I checked the USGS web site first and found out there was an earthquake in
Maine, near Lake Arrowhead, with a magnitude of 4.6 (initially reported as
4.5).  Then I called my sister in the neighboring town to see if she also
felt it - she had.

 

It only lasted a couple of seconds and there was no damage but until I
talked to my sister, I hadn't ruled out a nearby truck accident.

 

All this after arriving home to an unusual amount of traffic parked on my
street this afternoon and finding out the Dalai Lama was giving a talk on
the next block.

 

Phew!

 

I am curious if others felt the shaking and where you were when you felt
it...
