How many of you on the East Coast felt the earth move under your feet right before 2 pm yesterday? My office started swaying, my blinds rattled and shook, and being a former Angeleña, I knew immediately we were in the midst of a temblor, a major one at that. Aftershocks may happen, magnitude greater than 5 can be expected. The East is so not prepared for this.
If you felt it, you can register your experience with the US Coast & Geological Survey here. I did. Someone had to tell the USCGS that NJ shook too.
