My birds were scared stiff, literally.
Didn't feel anything in the Tri Cicites.
I never even knew you peeps had an earthquake,
I hope everyone is okay
Didn't notice anything here in Sylva, NC.
Yikes!!! We're in the coast - didn't feel anything.
That's the third one since we moved here 8 years ago. Never had one my entire life that I recall, even when we lived out west. All the birds hid under the coop except a couple, who were frozen in their tracks.
Didn't feel anything here in middle TN, of course if it happened while I was choking to DEATH on a piece of corn I wouldn't have noticed! I think I aspirated a piece of corn...I was about to feed it to the girls, but I decided to taste it to see if it was field corn or sweet corn. Well, I choked and I swear I thought I was going to die right there in the chicken run! It was VERY scary for a minute or two...I couldn't get any air to go in! I was finally able to draw in enough air to cough, but it didn't help, couldn't get the dang corn out! Coughed my guts out for a few minutes, never got the corn out. I will probably have apiration pneumonia in a day or two...Husband and son still in house sleeping. How gross if they found my body with killer chickens sitting all over me! Where did it hit?
I haven't even seen confirmation of it yet, officially. We just know what it was from the last one that hit. DH and I were in different rooms and we both stood up suddenly, then realized the birds were nowhere to be seen and completely quiet.
Well, there was one in AK at the same time. Can't be the same one we felt, right? Or can it?

Quote:That is way too small to feel that far away. The closest thing to you in the last 24 hours was a very tiny one in Arkansas around 1am local time. I suspect you felt the aftershock of someone blasting. We leave near a quarry and I frequently feel that and it does feel like an earthquake. I never hear it, but I feel it. If they are blasting around a road, etc it will feel the same.
Of course, it could always have been an earthquake. It may not have been big enough to measure, which I would find amazing.
As far as I know, there is no blasting going on anywhere in the area. Housing construction is non-existent and no road work of that type is happening. Felt just like the last confirmed quake we had.
