Just a warmup for Irene. She’s coming your way and expected to hit the Carolinas as a 4 or possibly a 5.

I truly believe GOD is warning us as a nation. He may have just about had enough.

ROTFLMAO! Mrs p6 called me. She said everyone in their building on Baldwin near Campbells Run Road felt it for about 15-20 seconds. It was longer here. Maybe 10 seconds just light vibration then intensifying so much that the plants on the balcony were moving. Cat ran into the bedroom and hid, LOL!

>>Is there a known fault line in the area..<<

If it was felt in DC, you already know it is called “Bush’s Fault.”

Made me leave my home office in Great Neck, LI.

I was in Haiti ten days after the big one last year and felt a bunch of after shocks....I don't like the feeling one bit.

If the center was DC, perhaps it was precipitated when a politician told the truth.

If that were the case it was probably the result of hell freezing over.

The Appalachians are the oldest mountains on Earth. I can guess that the plate tectonics are still active pushing them eastward. There has to be a point where the forces overwhelm the static forces and something’s gotta give eventually..................

I agree. 10th floor of an old building. I doubt it is very earthquake resistant. I still feel like everything is moving.
