Earthquake, in Rhode Island?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011 | Personal | by

I swear I just felt the house moving around a little.  I just through I had been staring at code too much, but I had just read on CNN that there was an earthquake in NY / DC.

In case you’re curious, you’re not crazy.

Lets hope everyone had it as minor as I just did (just the monitors swaying a little).

UPDATE 8/23/2011 @ 2:33PM

There was an earthquake.  Some relevant links:

So far it seems minor, and no reported injuries or deaths.  I guess that also means no photos to be posted about the earthquake?

If it ever starts working again, you can report what you felt at the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program.
