    Lots of locals here in southeast MI claim to have felt it. I didn't feel a thing.

    It can't be the entire USA because I didn't feel the quake here in Ft.Worth. I bet Hawaii didn't feel it either.

    I live in NE Pennsylvania outside Philly, and my house was moving. Was sitting in my recliner after coming home from my PT job, and the chair was doing a little dance under my ass. Dog was a little uneazy, and wife was a little shook up, but the good thing is there was no damage to the house.
    Lots of folks a little freeked out, no-one hurt that I've heard of.

    Yep, living almost on the top of the New Madrid fault is not a comforting feeing. Just a few months ago my earthquake insurance was canceled by the Farm Bureau. The only place I could find coverage was from overseas risk companies re-insured by Lloyd's of London, at a much higher rate. Not looking forward to digging through a toppled house to find my emergency supply's. Anyone else live close to a fault zone and get earthquake insurance canceled?

    Live in Northern VA. Was in medical offices on the 4th floor of a building on the medical campus in Winchester with my two kids (ages 4 and 6). Small internal examination room, no windows. I was on my feet playing with my son and I didn't feel a thing. The nurse opened the door and said they were evacuating and didn't know why and to use the stairs. Evac. was uneventful, yet I was expecting the worse the entire time (active shooter, etc.). Scary.

    Huntington, West Virginia here and I didn't feel it, but people in my office did. They closed the building where I work and sent us all home early!

    Yeah...only prob with potential quakes out here is that the geology is completely different from Cali. The shockwaves can travel MUCH further on the east coast and still pack their punch.

    I'm kinda bummed. I think I was driving when it happened. I wanted to experience it! I've never felt an earthquake before.

    Had one here in Colorado late lastnight early this morning. 5.5 I think which is odd we never have earth quakes.
