Did You Feel The Quake?

An earthquake today in Virginia has apparently been felt by a number of people in Maine. No damages have been reported here in the State.

If you were one of those people who felt a tremor you can visit the USGS "Did You Feel It" web site and register where you were. You'll be asked for the zip code of your location, and you can also enter a street address. This information helps scientists understand the effects of the earthquake.
