EARTHQUAKE!

So i wake up to a phone call. End the phone call and about 5 seconds later. My bed starts shaking, the mirror begins shaking, my bob marley painting almost falls off and the whole shake lasted about 15-12 seconds. First earthquake/tremur i have ever experienced in my life. I have been checking to make sure family are all safe and aware, havnt checked on the camaro yet but shes not my first priority. Family first. Hope everyone is ok

I saw this on the news. I can't imagine what it feels like to experience an earthquake. It must be surreal. Glad you and yours are o.k.

My friend just sent me an article about this - I live right over the NH boarder where they supposedly felt it too - wondering if my dad was home and felt it....

got nothing where I am at work - though they say it was felt as far south as Boston....

Yes, sorry, I started a thread before I saw this one. My degree is in Disaster Science and although I hope everyone is OK, this is the kind of stuff that is cool to me.

Here is the info on the event:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...us2010xwa7.php

Looks to be closer to Cumberland area, about 11 or 12 miles deep.
