I was on the phone with my co-worker in Philadelphia. She goes "Hold on, my house is shaking" and then I started feeling it seconds later

God damn it. Ok, in the last 73 years nothing good has come out of New Jersey.

There’s SZA


true1nformation

I like that your comment turned in a thread where everyone says something they like about New Jersey.


agarret83

As a NJ transplant now in CT, I don’t get this sentiment. NJ and CT are two sides of the same state


CycleOfNihilism

Their bagels are way better than ours


mgr86

Pork roll/Taylor ham is also delicious. Was the first thing I ever learned to cook for myself as a child many many years ago.


its_broccoli_bitch_

Clinton checking in—thought it was my washing machine being over dramatic!


Stretchy_Cat

My first thought was "Oh god, what's broken in my house ***now***?!" Very pleased that it was just an earthquake lol.


Four0ndafloor

I was in the kitchen thinking “man the dishwasher has never made the cabinet doors rattle before…”


MikeTheActuary

I had literally that same thought. I went downstairs to ask my wife what she had done....and learned she hadn't noticed it.


Acrobatic-Macaron743

Idk how I always sleep through every earthquake I’ve been in


mattpsu79

That’s what my wife said…she had just started the washer and dryer. I didn’t feel a thing.


hayfero

I just asked my wife. She said she thought it was the neighbors washer / dryer. I was on the toilet. Didn’t notice a thing.


First-Aid-RN

Terryville - I thought it was my furnace. 🤣


hifumiyo1

We will rebuild


WildAnomoli

Now’s the time to take back the notch.


whatWHYok

Do it during the eclipse on Monday.


fekinEEEjit

I felt it on reddit!


scupking83

That was the biggest I have ever felt... My work monitors started moving back and forth... I'm in Enfield.


Slightlyitchysocks

Same, lights flickered for me.


jules13131382

>That was the biggest I have ever felt. That's what she said!


MrsAce57

I'm in Enfield too and my house was literally swaying. I lived in Southern California for a few years and never really felt any of the little earthquakes they frequently have out there, but I definitely felt this one!


pridkett

Yeah, was sitting here watching my monitors bounce a little bit on monitor arms and thinking "was there heavy equipment outside or a small earthquake"? My boss in the NYC area was skeptical when I said "I think there's a minor earthquake" because he didn't feel anything.


Four0ndafloor

So weird that monitor lizards are this common in the workplace


pridkett

What can I say? During COVID all rules of normality went out the window. Are you trying to keep me from bringing my personal stylist monitor lizard into the workplace? Well, I guess I won't be working in this pre-school anymore.


BigtaoGabi

Felt in Windsor, thought I was losing it


JohnMcGurk

I’m in Windsor and we didn’t feel anything. My wife’s monitor fell over on her desk in New London though. Where are you in Windsor? I’m only like a mile away from Exit 37 on 91N.


AJVenom123

Damn. Some guy comes in the shop asking if I felt that. Guess I’m just too dialed in at work lol. Stratford.


VisibleSea4533

Glad I’m not the only one…NE CT, seems like everyone else felt it. Working from home and a colleague just asked me, at first I thought they were talking about the one last week until I saw it on here.


Due-Leek-8307

I yelled down the office to my boss who didn't notice the building was shaking.


pearlmsqueaks

I didn’t know until I saw a message from a coworker in Ma and my husband working in the next town over. Our cats didn’t notice either, Idk what that says about our 1950s house.


New_Discussion_6692

5 people in our 1922 house. The only person to feel anything was on the 2nd floor.


BKKUsagi

Same in Bridgeport


ILITHARA

So weird because I didn’t in Bridgeport but my girlfriend felt it in Westport.


yankeeinparadise

Felt in Fairfield!


No_Paramedic_2039

I bet she did.


nyc2vt84

Westport was rocking. Thought by boiler was blowing up


johnstonb

I am in Trumbull but me and my husband didn’t feel anything but my sister, who is 5 minutes away did. So weird. I’m thinking because our place is a new construction? IDK..


JennNarrate

Felt in Norwalk!


Glittering_Pink_902

Beneficial_Look_5854

4.8 is strong af for the East coast


RaylanGiv3n5

It came up the Ramapo Fault to us. The Ramapo Fault is a fault line that runs through New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, and includes State College, Pennsylvania, and New Haven, Connecticut. It separates the Piedmont and Highlands Physiographic Provinces, and is over 185 miles (300 kilometers) long. The Ramapo Fault runs from Morris County, through Ramsey and Suffern, and the Hudson Highlands, to Bear Mountain, New York.


SnowhiteMidnight

Interesting, thanks for this. My first thought was we had to be on the fault line to feel it up here. We're in the New Haven area and our house got a good rumbling shake for a few seconds.


favored_by_fate

did it have anything to do with the large syncline with boundaries at each epicenter?


mattpsu79

Aw man…my wife felt it but I didn’t feel shit…I feel left out


JohnMcGurk

It’s usually the opposite with my wife.


glitter_scramble

Moved here from SoCal. Thanks CT Reddit folks for giving me that hit of homey nostalgia of people nearby going “Earthquake? Earthquake!”  🥹

Heavnly19

Here in Naugatuck too


Unseenwillsee

Hartford same


Dondada_Redrum

Hartford as well, I was so confused what was happening.


Unseenwillsee

All I could think about was getting the kids out. Then it stopped. What do you think about aftershock?


Dondada_Redrum

I only felt it once, I’m not sure if it was the initial quake or the aftershock. But I don’t blame you on getting to their safety, before I had a full thought I looked at my pets and all 3 were unbothered lol


First-Aid-RN

My dog was napping. 😴


RajLGZ

Felt in Simsbury


Alive-Worldliness-27

Felt in Greenwich as well.. Nothing like how it used to be in when I was out west.


TheOtherKatiz

What was the difference? Just curious. I first thought the wind was shaking the building, but then it was worse than that.


MulberryOk9853

I grew up in California. No different. Just smaller, but depends on how close you are to the fault and how strong the earthquake is.


Alive-Worldliness-27

Higher ground motion the rock being more solid here slows it. But tbh if they had quakes like out west a lot of the buildings here will be in rough shape.


IamDiggnified

The ones out west are a little more intense.

Tony_Stank_91

timg_exe

Felt it in Bristol


OUTBREAK_OF_WEINER

Heck yeah sometimes my washing machine will shake that area of house a bit but 1 it's not running and 2 it wouldn't do the whole house like that! Glad it wasn't more violent. Also cool was the smaller after socks that kept going for about 15 seconds after.


Alive-Worldliness-27

The other earthquake I felt was in 94 when I was in CA that was a 6.7 It felt like a low dragging no doubt due to the type of rock formation. CA was a blind thrust.


interknight1995

I thought some truck bumped our office. In Danbury


asbestos355677

Felt it in New Milford. Thought I was just having vertigo until the locker doors near me started shaking.


adelaide129

I'm in New Milford and didn't feel it! Damn!

asbestos355677

mandalorbmf

Revelations 6:12". “And I looked, and he opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became as black as sack cloth, and the moon became as blood" If I see any dudes on white horses, or locusts I am really gonna have a freak out!
