Yeah I live on mountville and Like
All of my friends were either calling or texting me asking if I had felt it but I didn’t cause I’m in new holland at the moment. I’m mad that I missed it. Something interesting actually happens and I miss it -_-

I felt the earthquake here in York, PA around 12:04 a.m. on 12/27/2008. Very loud, very rumbly, moved across the house - I though another house had exploded like earlier this year. Not my first earthquake experience, but very much stronger!!

Quite sad how bad Cuba got hit by this. I just visited there a few months before it happened. Beautiful country.

Comment from: Cynthia Visitor


I felt the first quake around 4:18 a.m. and five more after that until shortly before 6:00 a.m.. I kept a log of what time and my perceived intensity. We had another one sometime after 10:00 p.m. I live about 1/2 mile from the epicenter. For some reason when the first round of earthquakes occurred two weeks ago, I knew it was an earthquake. My hunch was confirmed when I called my neighbor and he felt it to.

Thank you for sharing that. I hadn’t noticed it but it’s an interesting way to look at the midwest flooding.

In response to: Florida Blackout

Comment from: Member

I was in the Philly suburbs during the northeast black out a few years ago and I was somewhat hoping it would spread to that area so we could see the stars. I really didn’t want to see it happen because it was a hot day and I thought of the older people and those with poor health that needed electricty to run medical equipment.

I was in Detroit when the northeast blackout happened, and, I want to tell you, a week without power is a strange thing. We discovered just how chaotic it can be without all the little things you get used to, like tv and traffic lights, not to mention refrigeration. Drinking bottled water and huddling in the house was strange, but I must say that for a time you could actually see starts at night, which are usually blocked by all the light in the sky. Strangely enough, there was no real widespread crime/looting going on. Everyone was stunned, I guess, including the criminals! Made me really grateful for the basics that we all take for granted.

Interesting note about the high pressure made it up to 30.78 here. I don’t remember seeing it get so high too often.
