I'm pretty sure I felt a tremor from the NJ earthquake today.  :o
Weird shaking noises in the house I couldn't trace at the time.
Though 130 miles NW of NYC, I noticed that I'm within the 3.0 (Richter scale) contour shown here

And tremors were reported significantly North of me.

Weather is crap, btw. Loads of rain this week, then 5 inches or so of wet snow, not including the ongoing snow showers expected through Saturday.  >:(  And the municipal snow plow truck destroyed my mailbox yesterday.  >:(

As a California " earthquake veteran " ( though not an official expert ) of over fifty years, I'm fairly sure you were detecting the New Jersey quake.

I must say I'm a bit amused at the news coverage, though l suppose a little hysteria is understandable given the rarity of detectable seismic activity there.

In the bay area, a 4.8 wouldn't get more than a passing mention in the nightly news, unless it resulted in significant damage or injury. Heck, l don't even get outta bed for those.  :laugh:

Sorry about your mailbox though, that sucks.

It's the third mini-quake I've experienced, all in NY State, others being c. 1981-2 and 1984-5.
The first and third Upstate, the second in Brooklyn.

It seems the quake's epicenter was not very far from a certain golf course in Bedminster NJ.

I heard about that back when I was at Wooster. And now I know that St Xenia (Kseniya) is the patroness saint of St Petersburg.

Rarity is right. the first earthquake I was aware of in Jersey was back not long after I was graduated from high school. Yesterday's event was felt by someone in nearby Wakefield, Mass. (I missed it, somehow)
