    Oddly enough, that is about the time I though my recliner felt like it was moving side to side slightly

    Default Earthquake

    We were in Bar Harbor a couple of years ago and felt an earthquake with the epicenter in Ellesworth. It felt like someone dropped the island a couple of feet. It lasted only a few seconds but later on we found out they closed some trails due to landslides.

    Lots of people in the Pioneer Valley of MA felt it. (Pioneer Valley are the communities that pretty much border the CT river). I'm located in Holyoke, MA.

    If you look at the USGS reports it seems that anyone on the "high grounds" aka Berkshire mtns around here did not feel it. Probably something to do with how the geological makeup channels the shock waves. Quite fascinating.
