sitting on the couch...here on LI in NY....thought one of the dogs was leaning against the couch scratching itself...kept looking kept feeling the couch move..the dog not moving when I looked...then my son comes out of his room “did you feel that”

then my wife calls me from work 25 miles away “did you feel that???” havent felt one here on LI for the past 30 years when a smaller one centered on LI Sound rocked things and made noise...

no noise at all this time...

Good grief... WTIC 1080 AM radio now interrupting Rush's show (with Mark Belling subbing today). Joe D'Ambrosio and news guy Aaron Kupec taking calls from CT residents "who felt something".

I didn't feel anything here in NW CT. Everything is still on my shelves... no damage whatsoever.

Bush's fault.

Or maybe it was Perry's fault. Got to be up-to-date.

Evacuating the Pentagon? 5.8? Perhaps an overreaction?

EXTREMELY SHALLOW, just 1kn, around just 3000 feet deep.

There is a large dam less than 3 miles from the epicenter.

Rolled for 30-45 seconds here in central South Carolina. Nothing came off the walls or anything like that, just a definite rolling movement.

Felt it here a little north of Raleigh. Talked to son in The Valley, he was rattled. This was his first earthquake. Can’t get daughter in DC, her husband works at the Pentagon.

The shaking got so bad in Massachusetts that Obama lost his grip on his putter and gerbils fell out of Barney Frank.

This is strange. I thought Palin wasn’t going to announce for a few more weeks!!

Or, is this an Obama bump in the polls for his recent pretend war announcement?

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

VERY good!!!
