#1841

My co-worker in NH felt it pretty good and described it as a good rolling earthquake.

I wondered what the hell that was - I thought it was a plane breaking the sound barrier lol.

<-- Lives in NH, a long time ago lived in Japan with plenty earthquakes. This earthquake didn't feel anything like those earthquakes :)


#1844

I felt it in NH! I thought it was my stupid neighbor slamming the front door downstairs at first, but then it sort of kept rumbling.

I missed the window to throw down lava font and grant area might. (heyoooo)


#1845

See - now that's what I would call big! 100,000 times greater than NH "big"! Wimps. ;-)

A 4.5 isn't an earthquake. It's a Magic Fingers motel bed massage.


#1847

Well, to be honest, a lot depends on proximity. Having been 1 mile from the epicenter of a 4.something I could see the whole house flex with an uncharacteristically sharp jolt. None of this long rolling waves kind of fun. Put some long cracks into the stucco.


#1848

lol yeah I lived in a high-rise apartment complex in Tokyo as a kid, and earthquakes were nothing special.


#1849

Whoa, 7.7 off the western coast of Canada, near some obscure island. Minor Tsunami chance.


#1850

Hawaii now not taking any chances; evacuations have been called out for the shallow areas. They're same some models are predicting one-meter heights; others 2+ meters. It may get kinda nasty in some places.

Got friends coming over since we live up on the hillside. They have evacuated the leeward coast and supposed to hit at 1030. A little over an hour from now.


#1852

Obscure island? You sir have insulted us! Duel by pistols at sundown!

Seriously, though, pretty large island, but not densely populated. Didn't feel a thing here, but I was pretty gassy...

7.3 earthquake some 200+km off the eastern coast of Japan, tsunami warnings issued...

My former roommate, now living in Tokyo, says, "this earthquake is NOT fun! Inside a 33 floor building, just feels like a rocking ship...."

#1854

Hopefully nothing comes of it. My sister is evacuating right now.


#1855

It was a long one alright. BT I think everything is fine. There were some small, less than one meter, tsunamis but it's pretty much finished.


#1856

TALK TO ME, SOCAL. TALK TO ME.


#1857

That was FUN! Wheeeeee! Do it again, SoCal! Do it again!

5.1 several miles inland east from Oceanside/Escondido. Felt it around 100 miles away in El Segundo. Good times!


#1858

How bizarre. I did not feel it at all, and I live in Oceanside about 5 miles east of the Pacific.


#1859

Have you seen my wallet?


#1860

Felt nothing =(

Almost directly west of it on the coast, though that would be further than Oceanside it looks like. Course I have been walking on a treadmill so that would further deaden it.
