No i didn't I can't remeber what I was doing at the time but i was here in New York I may have slept through it I can't remebeR.

But just knowing that one had happened here in the imediate time period is kinda creepy.

Was it the earthquake in Plattsburg?? Becuase if it was that is kind of scary and I remeber when it happend becuase my friend goes to Plattsburg university and she was firghtened, but other then that I couldn't feel anything but what would I feel, I live on Long Island so I was I think a little too far away to feel anything. Sorry you missed it Sharon, I am sure your would have enjoyed to experience something like that!

Yes, i was fishing at Green Lake that morning. I was on the deck fishing, when i felt the earthquake. It felt like i was on top of the water and the movement of waves.

I was rudely awoken that morning by the shaking! At the time, I was living in the 2nd floor apartment of a duplex, and the whole place rocked back and forth pretty hard for a few seconds. Also, the quiet afterwards was the strangest thing: people were up and about, but it was dead silent. The even was kind of cool, but a little creepy at the same time.

Yea i felt it and i live in canada. To know that i felt it and that it came from that far away amazing. I live near the border also. I have felt many earthquakes in the passed 10 years around this area. Such as the Niagra falls earhtquake in 98 which was a 5.1. (very high for this reagion) and the one in toronto in 94 (2.9), The one from qubec in 2000 (3.2) This seams to be a pertern and now there is evidence of a fault line in lake ontario. This is pretty creepy to me. Could we experience major siesmic activity in the next 20 years or so?
