Earthquake? What Earthquake?

Penn Street Bridge ~ Reading, PA

So, I get back to work from my lunch hour this afternoon, and my boss stopped me in the hallway and said to me,"So what did you think of the earthquake?" Huh? "What in the world is she talking about?", I thought to myself. Apparently, there was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake which started near Richmond, Virginia and we felt the effects here in Berks County, PA!

I, of course, felt nothing as I was in my car driving back from lunch at the time. My co-workers told me that they felt the vibrations and heard the rumbling while sitting at their desks and their computers and chairs shook as well. CNN is also now saying that the quake was felt in some parts of Canada, too.

After the earthquake, the Penn Street Bridge, a major bridge in the City of Reading close to where I live, was blocked off when a large crack was discovered. Wow!! Kinda scarey, eh?

  1. Apparently people felt it here in the Syracuse NY area. But I was gliding on my porch swing at the time watching hummingbirds.
