    In 65 years I can remember only two small rumbles in the NYC area. There's nothing more disturbing than feeling the Earth shake under your feet no matter how small it may be.

    I remember the quick jolt that made me think a truck hit my house in 2015 in Michigan -- It was a 4.2 magnitude, at a depth of 3.7 miles, centered about 5 miles south of Galesburg, located in south central Michigan, close to the Indiana border and just over 50 miles southeast from where I live. This was felt all the way up near Grand Rapids. Earthquakes are rare here, just like in western New York, but they do happen. Our strongest one was a 4.6 in 1947. My heart goes out to the people who experience massive quakes, like the one that just happened in Turkey. Very scary.

      We have had a few minor ones here, 4 in my life, but the one we had about a year ago was close to a 6, and the most powerful in Victoria Australia on record. It shook the shit out of my old house, and at first there was a jolt and I thought the house had been hit. There was another shaker in 2012 that was pretty big as well.

      Yea, I was from Michigan and had experienced many earth quakes. Just in 2013 in a rural area of lower Michigan, the earth actually dropped away from under my feet as I was walking. My ankle was twisted and my knee buckled, what a surprise. I was suddenly falling to the earth in my dads back yard.

    I was like 4 when I felt my first earthquake but my mom had already told me about them. So I looked around the playroom I was in, noticed that the entire room was shaking and so I realized it must be an earthquake. The friend who was in there with me thought she was going to die but I just did what my mom had said to do when I felt one of these earthquakes and so I got her to go to a relatively safe spot with me. If you know about earthquakes and that they could happen in your area, it makes them less scary. Yes, you will always still get an adrenaline rush but being able to figure out what's going on sooner rather than later reduces the level of anxiety that you feel.

    I experienced the two tremors in the 60s. First I had just got home from school. I was downstairs and my older brother was upstairs in his room working out with free weights. All of a sudden I heard a loud noise maybe about ten seconds long. I figured my brother had dropped his weights so I ran upstairs. My brother had obviously not dropped anything and we figured it was a tremor. We were aware there was a fault line in the area. The next day a couple classmates who lived in the opposite direction as me told me about a St Bernard that loved kids and we were all familiar with him as he would run up to us for petting and to play. He started to run up to them and all of a sudden he turned around and ran away yipping. They looked at each other wondering what was wrong. Within a few seconds they felt the quake. Apparently the dog sensed it first.

      @Ralfie Right. We discussed dogs early warning ability in class that next day. I think someone brought up other animals too. I remember as a kid worrying after the second tremor a year later. I was thinking we might get a larger damaging quake but it never came. Actually when you get those small tremors it is relieving pressure.

      It is said that a lot of animals can sense an impending earthquake, and dogs are supposed to be pretty sensitive to them. The same goes for people who have seizures, dogs can sense them before they happen.

    I generally sleep through earthquakes of this size too but, then again, the ground is different over there than it is in California and you all tend to feel them more readily and in a larger radius. I almost didn't feel the first of the Ridgecrest earthquakes because I thought it was my fan vibrating the bed until the very end of the earthquake. It happens.

    • Green Man

      You are correct about tremors in the east of the US are felt more strongly and over a larger distance. This is due to what the earth is like in the east. It is much older, harder, denser. It transmits the energy.
      To get an idea...everyone is familiar with those Newton's cradles gizmos...the handing steel balls. The ball on one side falls against the one next to it, and then the ball on the extreme other end reacts as though it was hit directly.
      If you replaced the steel balls with playdough the effect is hugely diminished.
      The east is the steel balls, the west coast earth is the playdough balls.

    I grew up on the west coast I have been thru many earthquakes & I have to say this seemed like an explosion & NOT an e.q. Plus the animals reactions weren't typical of those who experience e.q's. Our many dogs, cats, horses, etc. would ALL start really reacting, whining & barking, meowing, whinnying & all of them running as if REALLY startled. Even the chickens & ducks knew ahead of time. They'd all start this behavior a few seconds before we could notice anything resembling a quake. Another thing is that where the e.q's. are located they're different. Some move in a rolling motion like waves on the ocean where others shake & jerk & yet others feel like strikes coming from deep in the earth in a pounding type of sensation. I guess you have to go thru several quakes to understand, ya gotta be there. The strongest 1 was a 7.2 on the Richter Scale & afterwards we had 100's of aftershocks that followed for days. They truly make you realize just how tiny & helpless we are & how life is not under our control like we imagine it is. It also makes a person of faith lean on the Lord & know HE'S ultimately in control & that brings us such peace in the midst of the chaos, P.T.L.!

    I live on the outskirts of buffalo, kind of near Marilla. I suddenly woke up to what I thought was my house partially collapsing. Once it stopped, I was confused as hell, and I then heard my sister opening her door to ask what happened, giving me the courage to open my door asking what happened. She thought a car crashed into the house. I ended up sleeping with her out of fear, lol. 2 major snowstorms, 1 a blizzard, Damar Hamlin, bills lose in playoffs not going to the Superbowl, and now an earthquake. Can't get any worse, can it?

    These rattling earthquakes instead of the bouncy ones are so damaging. Back in 1983 I was in Popayan, Colombia and in the middle of the Holy Week, at 8:10 a.m. Holy Thursday, the ground shacked like in the videos but with 5.2 intensity and lasted 18 seconds. Those were the longer 18 seconds in my life. The city got destroyed.

    As far as being anxious about earthquakes: I once had a dream that the Big One was happening and I was relieved because I was dreaming I was in the park and away from anything that might fall. Then my brain kicked in and reminded me that I was actually sleeping inside the house and I jolted awake. My heart was racing and, the more I tried to figure out whether the motion I felt was the start of the Big One, the faster my heart raced. When it didn't get big, I finally realized that the "shaking" I thought I had felt had been my heart all along! lmao Bottom line about earthquakes is that, if you're not in a shitty building, you'll probably be fine.

      Also, I've been in four earthquakes in the magnitude 7 range and more earthquakes than I can realistically count lower than that and I'll tell you that my heart still races when there's an earthquake if I am awake for it and aware of it. They just start suddenly and that is something that's supposed to get your heart rate up.

    The earth is redistributing its pressures along old and deep faults which are felt in a larger area east of the Mississippi because it is a geologically much older "ground" than west of the MIssissippi-and the Rockies. I live in Kansas and even we get some occasional ground rumblings. Some are more shallow faults that get exacerbated by fracting. Kansas also shares a fault with Oklahoma that goes right down the middle of Kansas under the Flint Hills, but makes itself most felt south of the Kansas border in Oklahoma City. The northern branch of that fault can be traced to the east and goes right under Topeka. Back in November 2011?/2012?, we had a small earthquake in Topeka just east of Bennett's Mound. It shook my entire computer desk and monitor. Also, I could see the shadow of the chandelier in my dining room swinging more than you would think it would in such a small rumbling. My dog certainly noticed it. She was barking like crazy. I could hear a deep rumbling while it was all taking place, about 45 seconds of rumble and movement.

In a part of the world that has better building codes, we're relatively safe so I say enjoy the ride! 🤣 I'll spend the rest of my life wishing I could relive a 7.1 we had a few years ago.

    NY & earthquakes. Plattsburgh around 1983/4 there was a little shaker. Like the one reported here. Because of our proximity to an AFB, we assumed to be a nuclear target (it was the Cold War after all), we woke up and struggled to decide whether or not we had time to set up our lawn chairs and await the flash. We decided to drink beer instead. I live in SoCal now and don't even wake up for anything less than a 4.5 (local epicenter). Fun stuff!

    I learned if you are at the epicenter, I sure did not feel a roll or a shake. I felt like the ground dropped and came back up with a loud noise, also a hard jolt. It’s like dropping a rock in water. The center drops and then goes back up sending out the shake
    oll effect and lessens as it goes away from the center.

    Lived in California during San Fransico and you do hear noise and been in South Carolina when they had an earthquake. It had a bang and I wonder if it is because the faults haven't moved in a long time. Almost like a sonic boom. More charring than a roll, like California. Be interesting if someone who studies this a kind of thing as a reason for it.

    • MeriLizzie
      MeriLizzie Місяць тому +2

      It was likely what is called a “Supershear earthquake”, an earthquake in which the spreading, of the rupture, along the fault surface occurs at speeds in excess of the seismic shear wave (S-wave) velocity, causing an effect akin to a sonic boom. To the sleeping brain it might sound like an explosion.

    I was in my basement at 6 am and the house made weird noises like a ghost walking around upstairs, but apear's to have been the temor before the earth quake. At 6:15am I heard a sound outside and felt like 3 pulse wave through the ground then it hit the house and shook the house violently. After all, I can say to describe it was like a wave coming and crashing into a boat, but in this case was a house. But, I figure that's a better anology to describe it to someone that wasn't there. I have also felt Lighting strike shake the ground at first Thats what I thought Was a 3.8 magnitude that's pretty big for this area

      He says he doesn't predict, he forecasts. There's a difference. But yeah, he's usually right on the money, and he forecast both of these eq's.
      I was watching him Live when the first 8.1 hit Turkey. He immediately said that either the enegy wave would move west, causing quakes across the boundary plate of the creton toward Greece and Italy, or the energy would remain locked up in the same area, and deliver another large eq.
      Within minutes, while still Live, the 2nd 8.0 hit.
      Those were both downgraded to 7.8 and 7.5, with a third to follow at 6.0. Hundreds of aftershocks 4.5 and above. Devastating to countries with stone-stack buildings for apartments, and in the middle of the night like this. Tens of thousands of casualties, which may not be reported. Heartbreaking.

    Because the eastern states have a granite bedrock, there's little chance of a major earthquake. BUT-- also because it's on granite, the effect will spread much further than other areas. The last earthquake I felt here in NJ was in 2010 and the epicenter was in Virginia, over 500 miles away. We do get earthquakes here as there is small fault line known as the Raritan Fault, that lies 5-10 miles west of NYC. In the late 1970's there was another, much worse, when I was living closer to the city.

    Pressure release of tectonic plates occurs two ways, most are as you said rolling and last more than a few seconds, what you felt today was a jolt, this is a more violent release of pressure that last only a few seconds. What you felt was a direct effect of the quake in Turkey.
