I'm from Erie, Pa and some people felt it here. One place was Saint Vincent Hospital on the Eight floor and the Court House down by Lake Erie. It has happen here several different times in the last 12 years. I was driving over too the hospital I didn't feel anything.

the last one I was sitting in the basement of Saint Vincent with my husband having MRI all I could think the floors coming down. I felt that one.

Seems like a swarm of them in the area. Also seems like there have been a lot of larger earthquakes everywhere in the last year. Get under your desk - not in a door frame. Or outside as far from buildings as you can. Most are more unnerving than destructive.

That is so unusual. A quake in New York. Needless to say we felt nothing here.

Felt it in Binghamton. Of course, I am in Texas for business and missed it. My CFO sent me an email right after it happened and said that our building was shaking. Checked on line and learned about the earthquake.

But we are about 5 hours south of the epicenter - can't believe it was felt that far away.
