    Nope, it's not normal on the East Coast. Didn't feel anything in Maryland this time but my cat's extra clingy tonight...

    Thats very scary then. I notice if people are from earthquake prone areas they are a bit 'meh, whatever' - which is why I asked! I wonder what is going on? Have they said anything? Do they expect a big one?

    Oh - I just saw where you were from...I've been to Maryland - stay safe and lets hope there is no more!

    I hope this is the last of the quakes for you easterners. The whole world is changing tho. The polar ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. I have a feeling we are in for alot more strange weather & happenings in the future. I am a firm believer in warning signs and there are more and more happening each day. When the space flights first started back in the late 1960's my Mom told me to watch and see what happens to the world. She told me that the moon controls the earths ocean tides and so forth. The more times they go into space the more it will change things and create problems. I was just about 10 years old then and I am now in my early 60's and I am realizing she was right. crafty_linda_b

    I agree - there is definitely something going on. The world is off kilter for sure. There is so much going on all of the time - its very worrying!

    I felt it, but I was sitting still in my chair. I believe if I'd been busy moving around I probably wouldn't have noticed it.

    There have been many earthquakes in this region going back 150+ years, many noted in writings...letters/newspapers/diaries...of the time, but none of them was as strong as the one Tuesday, since the 1890s. Were you aware that northern CA had 2 quakes today? And there was a 7.0 in Peru?

    Believe me we are more concerned about the impending hurricane -- those are more common and certainly more likely to cause death and damage for us in this part of the country. Any Bible student, though, sure sees similarities in current news and end time prophecies! Especially when quake day was spectacularly beautiful with the bluest skies and the whitest clouds we've seen in months; hard not to look up with expectation!

    I didn't feel the aftershock, my dogs did not either as they would have gone crazy like they did Tuesday.
    Aftershocks are very common after a quake.

    With the weather & catastrophies all over the World, something has to be up. Eery. I always try to live as good of a life as possible and am prepared as I can be for whatever. Here In Oklahoma we have sure had a lot more small earthquakes this year, than normal. Very sm ones compared to other parts. We have had our share of tornadoes and this severe drought we are in.

    The Earth is the EArth. Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc, have been going on since day one. Only difference, a hundred years ago if you got a natural disaster in your area, that was it. You couldn't turn on CNN and see, oh, they had one in Peru too, and they had one in New Zealand, and what is going on?

    There is a PERCEPTION that more of these are happening, because we all hear about all of them instantly.

    Our little tremor Tuesday was nothing out of the ordinary (and perhaps a tiny aftershock overnight?). There have been much worse quakes in the past before there were even machines so don't let the global warming hysterics scare you! The earth has been warmer and cooler than it is now! The Ultimate Designer is in control! So stay right with God and Chill!
