It's pretty cool when there are no deaths/little damage and you get to feel the shake, Bogie. For a scientific assessment of your quake, see href="http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/se082311a.html#scitech" target=_blank>Magnitude 5.8 - Virginia.
Do you remember the quake in Seattle? I think it was about a 4.3 - or - I may be confused since it hit at about 4:00 am.

Sorry...I omitted the leading HTML. Let's see if I can do better this time.

Magnitude 5.8 - Virginia


I was on that website reporting that we felt the quake about 10 minutes after it happened.

Funny, that night the ABC Evening News had a map that showed the felt earthquake only went to Mass - apparently they thought the boarder kept Vermont and NH from its effects (even though it was felt up in Canada).

Good deal, on your rapid report! Who knows how news media get/scramble the news? I shouldn't give them grief. I've put out newsletters for 2 or 3 different organizations and I can attest to how easy it is to screw things up. Neither intelligence nor intent (I'm flattering myself here) prevents screwups.
