Aw man i missed it. Down in Florida this week. I remember the last one that struck Virginia. It shook the whole coast. I wonder if the S Waves will make it down here, probably not.

It reminded me of the 2011 Virginia earthquake, which I also felt in NYC.

I have been to California numerous times, as well as Seattle, Anchorage, Sicily, Japan and other seismically active zones.

But the only quakes I have felt were at home in New York.

I thought I was going insane at first until everyone else started saying/messaging “did you feel that”, my apt also just started to rumble and everything started shaking/rattling on shelving.

My parents house is 4 miles away from the epicenter. Felt it this morning here in Eastern PA. Thought it was construction equipment for a minute as they are doing some work nearby, at first. Trippy stuff. Now I just need to experience a tornado, mile long asteroid and locust swarm to check off the experience list.

The epicenter isn’t too far from me being only around 30 miles away. It was the strangest thing I’ve experienced. I thought it was a heavy truck speeding by and hitting a bump but this persisted far longer and I had the weird feeling as if I got off an elevator when it subsided.

There was just an aftershock (or foreshock to an even bigger tremor).

Just when I thought I had achieved some stability in my life, I feel shocked right to my core.

Just some iPhone shots. I didn’t have glasses so I didn’t look directly. It was easier to see the eclipse through the reflection of the glass in the camera (middle-right).

This was 3:07 and 3:23 PM before a giant cloud rolled in.
