    I apologize ahead of time if this topic has already been posted. If not, I'm sure many are already aware that we had a 5.8 earthquake here on the east coast of the US at around 1:50 pm today..............we felt it here in CT

    Wasn't it something! Thank you for posting about it. It seems to be big news everywhere, as it is a very rare event! Family up in Cincinnati even felt it, as did people in Toronto! I hope everyone is Ok!

    Jehovah's Witnesses believe earthquakes have become more frequent and severe in recent years, and this is a sign of Armageddon approaching. Here is a graph of data collected by the US Geological Survey regarding the frequency and severity of worldwide earthquakes since 1900, with a mathematical forecast to 2050.

    pssst....spoiler! The trend is slightly downward!

    Felt it from 20 stories up. Hey, why is the building shaking? Coworkers thought it was a train - but no trains to be seen. Not wind either. I said remember this happened around 1:50 or so, I think it's an earthquake....

    Yeah, I was disappointed. Didn't feel jack. I was working in a freezer and then heard something happened when I came out. On the way home, NPR said it was an earthquake. Would have been my first.
