Do the Wave, the Seismic Wave!

The Wave

The Seismic Wave

I felt it too…all the way in Hartford! Many of us did, along the eastern board.

The 5.9 tremor that got us all shook up at about 2:00 P.M. (EST) today, created a sensational surface wave that was felt from its epicenter in VA all the way up to Northern New England.

While earthquakes aren’t as common on the east coast as they are on the west, mainly because the eastern board is a part of the North American Plate, it shouldn’t be unexpected.Remember Pangaea? Well of course you don’t remember first hand, but you have heard of it–right??!

Anyhow today’s seismic activity, categorized at 5.9 on the Richter scale, was pretty much relegated to the earth’s surface, so don’t worry we won’t be drifting off anywhere ;)

Stay tuned to your local news, for detailed coverage.
