    Re: Earthquake

    Our office is on the top floor of a seven story office building in Huntington, WV. The building was visibly shaking. I was meeting with a legal assistant when our chairs started to move back and forth. The blinds started banging on the windows. Spooky. The local court house was evacuated.

    Downtown Cincinnati, it felt like the building was swaying in the breeze for a second. I thought it was my imagination until someone came out of their office saying "Did anyone else just feel that?!"

    Re: Earthquake

    I did not feel it here in Spring Grove Village (Mitchell Ave area of I-75) and didn't know about until my oldest daughter called me to tell me they'd been evacuated and she was walking home. Texted my son & his girlfriend right away heard from her, but my son wasn't getting service. She texted me back and said she'd heard from him.

    I was watching a video on the Washington Post website watching the White House when the quake hit. There were federal agents on the rooftop almost immediately, probably about a dozen within seconds of the tremor. Very interesting.

    The only earthquake I ever felt was a 4.8 in Oakland. Sounded as if a forklift was running on the floor above and the light fixtures started shaking. I missed the 1980 here, didn't feel it. When my daughter told me 5.8, I knew that was fairly sizeable particularly out east here.

    Re: Earthquake

    6 miles as the crow flies from the reported epicenter (4 miles from nuclear power station).

    Came home to find a few things knocked off shelves and broken, but no major damage. Power did not go out here, but a couple miles down the road, they are still without.

    Mineral is a two stoplight town straight out of Mayberry. Nothing significant about it, but a nice town to pass through.

    Cats are seriously freaked.

    Felt nothing where I'm at in Sharonville. My mom called from Hamilton and asked if I felt it (she didn't). Wasn't aware until a co-worker randomly brought up the Enquirer page and it was breaking news.

    How did you not feel it?! I'm also in Sharonville and felt it while I was finishing up my lunch. The table started moving like someone was shaking it and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I didn't realize it was an earthquake until I got back to my desk, was randomly checking Twitter, and saw all the earthquate updates. My coworkers all felt it but didn't realize what it was until I told them. First earthquake here that I've actually felt and it was really odd and I could definitely live the rest of my life not feeling one bigger than this one.

    Didn't feel a thing here in Lincoln County, WV, but several people in the area did. I have noticed, though, that my right and left brains have switched sides, so that might have happened during the quake.

    With this plus Irene bearing down on us, I think I'm going to get a head start on my weekend drinking.

    Was on the phone with someone in DC when it hit there. She hung up and evacuated. We felt in NY a couple of minutes later. Weird.

    Have to remember that our building codes aren't the same out here.... we don't build our building to withstand earthquakes.
