I felt it! I was in the bathroom at my mom's house and I had just flushed the toilet. I thought that there was something wrong with the plumbing and the water pressure was shaking the toilet. Then I started to feel slightly off balance and I thought I was having an inner ear issue. It was pretty scary but, it stopped within a couple of seconds so I didn't think anything of it until my dd called my cell and asked me if I felt it. She was skyping with a friend in PA and her friend felt it first and then dd felt it and we're in CT. She said it was really freaky.
We don't get too many tremors in this neck of the woods. Last time we had one, I think I was still living home with my parents at least 25 yrs ago.

I was in a classroom, talking the principal in fact. Next thing you know the room is shaking, few seconds later, it stops. Thought it was pretty cool until I couldnt get home for two hours. UGH!! But school is closed today to check for damage, so COOL!!:-)

I didn't feel it at school and my husband said nothing shook at home, but the people in the older high rise buildings

Was at the Canadian National Exhibition all day and didn't feel a thing. Glad I decided to skip the rides, though.

Hey Me too!! Bracing for the worse. I guess I should just go into my bathroom with my candles and dog and wait it out. Thats all I can think to do. I live in an apartment building, so not much I can do. Going to try and get some supplies. Hope there's stuff left. LOL!! Fun weather times!! *GOOD NIGHT IRENE*
