Yes, shook, rattled, & rolled with laughter!

Anyone hear from DevilGrad?

A friend from Miami who is a graduate student in physics at Maryland reports that the National Institute of Standards and Technology closed for the day.

You would think that, of all the buildings in the DC area to remain open, it would be the one with research facilities devoted to earthquake hazard reduction.

When should we mount the MHT.com search and rescue?


I'm fine, but I'm not in Richmond at the moment. I'm in the OBX. We did feel it. We were on the third floor and thought somebody on the second floor was having a pretty zesty afternooner. Word is that things back home are fine, but I've heard a few stories of cracked picture frames and such.

That's good to hear, but just so you know I had hard hats, safety vests, pry bars, sledge hammers, and my 14-year old beagle standing by.

We were rocking a little bit in downtown Detroit. Stronger and longer than the Canadian earthquake a year or so ago. Felt like I was in one big hula hoop.

I flew out of GSP yesterday and the TSA said that the movement set off their metal detectors.

NIST doesn't really do anything with hazard reduction, but yeah, good point!

Old School Scholar and I were sitting in the upper deck at Progressive Field when it started swaying . Lasted about 30 seconds to a minute. I was the first person to yell out "it's an earthquake. Probably about half the people sitting around us got uneasy and left (where are you going to go? It takes about 5 minutes to walk downstairs.) I was getting dizzy. This was my second earthquake experience and this one lasted longer and shook harder. The earthquake did not seem to have much of an effect on the lower deck or game on the field, but in the upper deck and evidently the pressbox it was a little scary.

I was talking to a buddy with the Cavs and he said they had to evacuate the Q. Didn't realize it was that potent in Cleveland.

There was an earthquake??? I had surgery Tues. morning so obviously missed it. Why is it that on Hawk Talk is the first I've seen about it? LOL Seriously, I know I've been out of the loop for a week but I didn't even know!

The hurricane I heard about, and some things didn't change, one of the Bengals was in court/jail again. Since the only place I saw mention of the earthquake was on here I wondered if you caused it Mollautt - what were you doing in that building downtown??
