Anyone else feel the earthquake this morning? (6/10)

Post by MWmetalhead » Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:39 pm

Just before 11a this morning, I left my desk to get a drink of water, and a feeling of motion sickness suddenly came about me. The wall-mounted TV down the floor looked like it was oscillating.

Turns out I wasn't losing my mind after all! :)

4.2 quake centered just northeast of Cleveland.

London ON. 107 miles north of Cleveland. Never felt a thing. At that time, I would have been up on the ladder adjusting the satellite dish. Didn't even know there had been an earthquake until I saw it here.

Didn't feel it in St. Johns.

Did not feel it at my 6th office in downtown Detroit.

Aside from being of slightly lower magnitude, it is a near-perfect reenactment of the earthquake that happened on 1/31/1986 (three days after the Challenger explosion).

Of note, the Galesburg Earthquake of May 2nd, 2015, was not only felt, but it knocked over boxes of stuff in the attic, and made it difficult to open and close the front door of my residence for a about a year. This was 103 miles east of the epicenter, while no one else we knew felt it.
It dawned on me that I'm in a seismic risk zone, because I'm on a former lake floor with a high water table.
The 1985 México earthquake actually occurred under the Pacific Ocean - but was so deep such that there was no tsunami. The shockwave continued under Michoacán and EdoMex without anyone feeling it on the surface, and devastated México City - a lake bed.

If there were to be a 6.0 shock anywhere within 300 miles here, I'm in real trouble.

For me it was the tacos I consumed the night before.
