    Here is where I keep track of seismic activity:  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/

    So far, they are not showing anything for your area, but results are not immediate.

    Wow, it was a 5.5 magnitude. Supposedly they felt it as far away as Detroit, Cleveland, Boston and Springfield. I don't live too far from Springfield, but didn't feel anything.

    Just spoke to my son who lives in Boston. He did not feel anything. But then again, maybe that's just him.

    Didn't feel it here in California-- but then we are used to them and sometimes don't notice anything under 6.5

    5.5?  That's considered an aftershock in Cali not an earthquake.

    I just spoke to a friend in Toronto, he lives on the 15th floor in his condo building, he said he felt the building sway, it was felt in Ottawa and Montreal as well. Detroit, Columbus Ohio and Albany New York reported some shake rattle and roll. Yikes

    I live in Chicopee, Mass and there were reports of some people within my town who felt it. There are also reported calls from several surrounding towns/cities, where it was felt.

    I didn't feel anything. wink

    I was rocking my chair while watching the England game with my cousin, and all of a sudden some cushions which we separated on top of my dog's cage (because we're painting) started to shake.

    My cousin first looks at the cushions then at me, and goes like "dude you're making those cushions shake! I can feel it from here!". And I was like, how the hell am I doing that, I'm barely moving the chair.

    I thought I was just plain awesome. The cushions were shaking like crazy (I didn't feel it though). Then, I was like "I'm gonna freak my brother out when he gets home by doing this trick".

    So I tried it again after the cushions stopped shaking a few seconds later, but I couldn't get them to shake at all, even when I rocked the chair violently. I thought I was just handicapped.

    That proved to be true when, a few minutes later, my mom calls and asks "did you feel the earthquake?". I was like "oooooooh.... yeah", and things became a lot clearer then.

    Moral of the story: things don't shake when you're 5 metres away from them and you're just rocking a chair.
