I thought you pretty much couldn't feel anything below a 3.0.

I think that the drumline I was part of in high school could have achieved that...

/no, it wasn't because we were fat, we weren't fat
//that came later when no longer dragging around 45lb of drums for three hours a day

Theres a high pressure system across the region so they've got that going for them.

Came for this. Sandy and this mini-quake should be considered "Urban renewal" along most of the Acela corridor.

Hubby thinks it was Gov Christie after a visit to Taco Bell.
Would a 2.0 even make waves?

As many others here have, I've been through my share of quakes. Anything under 5.0 just feels like a tractor trailer is driving past you, or maybe like a strong roll of midwestern thunder. I can't even picture a 2.0.

I heard on Fox that the quake was centered in the area that Christy was out trick or treating.
He tripped over his candy bag.
Or something like that.

"TEMBLOR"


"The magnitude 2.0 temblor struck at 1:19 a.m. and was centered in Ringwood, N.J., a community that's still reeling from downed trees and power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy."

"temblor" is the right term.

The quake's too small for them to even bother putting it on the main maps.

Peterson? a/k/a Paterson

The City of Paterson, located on the Passaic River in New Jersey was once one of the mightiest industrial cities of the United States. It has a rich history as the Nation's first planned industrial city, as well as containing some of the country's oldest textile mills and businesses.

In 1792, Alexander Hamilton formed an investment group called the Society of Useful Manufactures (the "SUM") whose funds would be used to develop a planned industrial city in the United States that was later to become Paterson. Hamilton believed that the United States needed to reduce its dependence on foreign goods and should instead develop its own industries.

The industries developed in Paterson were powered by the 77-foot high Great Falls of the Passaic, and a system of water raceways that harnessed the power of the falls. The district originally included dozens of mill buildings and other manufacturing structures associated with the textile industry and later, the firearms, silk, and railroad locomotive manufacturing industries. In the latter half of the 1800's, silk production became the dominant industry and formed the basis of Paterson's most prosperous period, earning it the nickname "Silk City." Paterson was also the site of historic labor unrest that focused on anti-child labor legislation, safety in the workplace, a minimum wage, and reasonable working hours. (patersonhistory.com)

That would make 95 the Highway to Hell, which is just about right.

Well, when the East Coast Quake happened last year, 8 thought it was just that in my house. I didn't give it a second thought until my ears told my brain, "That rumbling just now? THERE WAS NO TRUCK, DUMBASS" and my father came up the stairs asking what had just went past.

It shows up on Google Earth but there were many bigger ones in the past few days in other places. They're just trying to disaster porn the news.
