5.2 Earthquake

Yesterday morning, we were awakened at 5:30 a.m. EST by the whole house shaking and we realized that we had just felt an earthquake. Luckily, this was the only "damage" I discovered in our house: tiny Curious George atop the piano had been knocked over.

If you feel your house shaking or just want to see where the earth is moving today, here's a great site to check out. Click on the "did you feel it?" link if you're looking for information on a local event you've experienced.Within 20 minutes, our quake was posted with relatively accurate statistics regarding magnitude and epicenter. As more information came in, those were adjusted.
