Earthquake Tuesday, August 23, 2011

MINERAL, Va. - The most powerful earthquake to strike the East Coast in 67 years shook buildings and rattled nerves from South Carolina to Maine on Tuesday, August 23, 2011.

The most important thing to take away from this (for me) is what an aftershock feels like. We felt the aftershock all the way here to Northeaster Pennsylvania. I was working at my computer when I had a strange feeling. It was almost like a "dizzy feeling," but without the nausea.

Other people I talked to said it was a feeling to a high blood pressure spike of blood sugar levels dropping. I suspected an earthquake, but nothing had moved in my office, not even the blinds.

Here is a great source for earthquake info: US Geological Survey Earthquake Center.
