An earthquake centred between New York and Philadelphia shook skyscrapers and suburbs across the northeastern US for several seconds Friday morning (Eastern Standard Time), causing no major damage but startling millions of people in an area unaccustomed to such tremors.

I didn’t feel anything here in California ironically. A New Yorker apologized to us Californians. Apology accepted. Nature is no respecter of persons.

4.8 not such a big deal? but I guess if the earth never moved for someone before ... Taiwan had a monster 7.4 last week and weathered it impressively well, considering.

Spain has - and I did not know this until I looked it up - 30 a year on average, wow roughly every 11 days help the most recent was 7 hours ago. I slept through it ... perhaps if I'd been awake I'd have seen my glass of water ripple and wondered if there was a T-Rex in the area.

In the past 30 days, Spain has had 528 quakes of magnitudes up to 4.5:

1 quake above magnitude 4
7 quakes between magnitude 3 and 4
83 quakes between magnitude 2 and 3
437 quakes below magnitude 2 that people normally don't feel.

So today I learned something.
