    I'm very glad that you are safe, Increase! 

    My husband made some calls to Richmond to check on his family.

    I'm checking on my Virginia relatives as well.

    The phone lines are jammed!

    Thanks Lady of the moon & dr65 et al, are we in a bad wanning phase of the moon?

            I'm happy you are here and posting increase...the chart above looks like once one hits, aftershocks can come smaller in magnatude and sometimes

            larger. Take care and get out if you feel it again. Be safe...and that goes for all of you close to the center, take care.

            I felt it and thanked God I didn't have to witness an 8.9..I couldn't imagine, this one was frightening enough even here in PA. The walls were moving

            and the ceiling too, the floor was moving - not violently but enough to know something was very wrong.

            Hey dr65, moon, et al-

            Thanks for all the important updates; I know retro is still on but are we in a dangerous phas of the moon?

              The largest earthquake on the East Coast

              was in Charleston, SC in 1886.  7.3 Magnitude!

              Damage from Charleston earthquake of August 31, 1886

              Largest Earthquake in South Carolina

               

              The Charleston Earthquake of 1886 was a powerful intraplate earthquake that hit the area of Charleston, South Carolina. After the 1811 and 1812 quakes in New Madrid, Missouri, it is one of the most powerful and damaging quakes to hit the southeastern United States.  The shaking occurred at 9:50 p.m. on August 31, 1886 and lasted just under a minute. The earthquake caused severe damage in Charleston, South Carolina, damaging 2,000 buildings and causing $6 million worth in damages (over $141 million in 2009 dollars), while in the whole city the buildings were only valued at approximately $24 million. Between 60 and 110 lives were lost. Some of the damage is still seen today.

              Major damage occurred as far away as Tybee, Georgia, (over 60 miles away) and structural damage was reported several hundred miles from Charleston (including central Alabama, central Ohio, eastern Kentucky, southern Virginia and western West Virginia). It was felt as far away as Boston to the north, Chicago and Milwaukee to the northwest, as far west as New Orleans, as far south as  Cuba, and as far east as Bermuda.

                    This was a first time feeling for me, my house was shaking.

                    Unusual but not surprising.

                    Hope everyone is safe.
