Re: Seismic Event

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
USGS has it as a 5.9 centered just west of Richmond, Virginia, near Charlottesville (UVa). I've heard from people from southern NC to NY to OH.

In Blacksburg, VA, we got 7-10 seconds of low-moderate shaking (call it a low to mid 3 range based on my time in Cali), then a second 1-2 second shake 45-60 seconds later. It may set a new record for Virginia, surpassing the Narrows quake in 1897 that was estimated to be a 5.9 based on data from observers in Various east coast towns and the local damage.

I know you west coast guys will laugh, but ground shaking on the east
coast is pretty rare. Anyway we just had seismic event that was felt from
at least Philadelphia to Newark, NJ
