    Yeah it was pretty weird, first time ive felt a earthquake but it wasnt big. but thats a weird thing on the east coast. Im in New Jersey, they said on the news it originated in Virginia and went as far south as North Carolina and as far north as Toronto. Dont think there was any damage though, hope not

    Exactly what I heard, I thought I was going crazy though. Everything in my house just started shaking so I just ran outside. All is well though, haven't heard anything except some lady's china case fell in Virginia.

    It's not the size of the earthquake that was shocking, but the area that it occurred... a 5.8 isn't big in California, but on the East Coast they're a rare thing!

    Hope everyone is okay.... scary that it's happening over there...

    Just some minor shaking, I also thought I was going crazy, but I thought it was the Dolomite Quarry I live near that shakes every Tuesday, but today, it was much longer.
